WISE INTELLIGENT “this space” music video
THIS SPACE is a hardcore, yet soulful beast of a track in terms of its production. The track was produced by Scott “Bigg Scott” Clayburn for 7XL Productions. It is the album opener for Wise Intelligent’s Stevie Bonneville Wallace, Back 2 School 4th Period release. Again the video was directed by Wise Intelligent and the ultra talented Jimmy Giambrone. The video manages to capture the matter of fact and emphatic message of the song, which is that Hip Hop, the community and world are in a critical space at a critical time wherein the culture and community must decide if its going to detach itself from the dangerous over commercialization by corporations which has restricted diversity of artists, views, styles, and subject matter at the mainstream level, and thus defines a culture of several million by 10 rappers on a corporations playlist.
THIS SPACE is about Hip Hoppers determining for themselves what Hip Hop is, and or isn’t. THIS SPACE was written, produced and recorded because, like the cultures right to self-determination, the exigencies of the culture demanded it.
