Bars Closed Prod. Adverb – BingeNinja (New Music Video)
Parkdale’s BingeNinja teamed up with Zmuda Films to bring the world a creative new video for his latest single, Bars Closed. I love seeing the imaginative ways artist’s like BingeNinja are pushing through this pandemic, and not allowing it to stop them from putting out new music and visuals. A good song, a cellphone, a green screen mixed with some creative editing + sfx and boom! A new piece of art for your fans!
Bars closed was produced by Adverb and was featured on Benny The Butcher’s “Cutting Up With Benny Vol. 2” Mixtape. It was BingeNinja’s first hip-hop release and it got a lot of positive attention, I’m glad to see Coronavirus didn’t stop the track from having an accompanying video. When asked about the lyrics behind the track BingeNinja said
“I went into writing with the notion that this may be the only document of my rapping ability, so I knew I had to go all out in terms of showcasing my lyrical quality, wordplay, cadence, aggression and wit. I’m a huge battle rap fan (King of the Dot, RBE, URL) so I knew I wanted three separate verses, each with a completely different cadence and flow. That way I could be creative in how I presented my story, and treat the three verses like three rounds where I could construct schemes in one round, heavy lyrical wordplay in another, storytelling etc. In the end I threw caution to the wind and let the cadence and flow for each verse happen naturally. My main focus was on the bars, and telling my story through wordplay and lyricism. Benny The Butcher and his team (Conway the Machine, Westside Gunn) have been leaders in bringing back creativity and lyricism back to hip hop, so they were a direct inspiration. If this was gonna be the legit shot I had always waited for, and Benny was willing to include me in something he attached his name to, then I was going to exude everything I loved about hip hop in both the writing and delivery.”
