Hieroglyphics x Capcom x Live Tour

Hieroglyphics and Capcom have teamed up to bring a dope idea to the forefront. It's gonna be a mixtape/soundtrack to the ever-famed Marvel V. Capcom 2! Here's some more details from the officials:


For too long gamers have been bludgeoned by grating, repetitive game soundtracks. Capcom has answered their prayers and exceeded expectations by assembling the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Hip Hop Mixtape. The lead video from the Mixtape- "Battle Drum"- is provided by legendary Oakland hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics. Directed by Andrew Georgopolous and Paul Trillo, the video pays tribute to Capcom's rich history in the gaming industry by evoking classic Street Fighter imagery, as the rapping protagonists take down henchmen in a variety of settings, including a junkyard and a dojo. Tajai was thrilled with the video- "it's got some live action and mimics the video game itself. It’s not just us rapping, it puts us inside the game." Tajai says that the action was so intense, in fact, that "we had to tone it down for the final cut because it was too violent. We were really fighting behind the scenes." The track was produced by Domino, and features verses by Tajai, Casual, and Pep Love. With a catchy chorus, belted out powerfully by Tajai ("Hands, feet, 'bo’s, teeth, knees. Even the words I speak cut deep."), there can be no doubt that "Battle Drum" was perfectly crafted for a fighting game like Marvel vs. Capcom 2. The song, with its infectious chorus and pugilistic verses, will be instrumental in motivating gamers to crush their opponents. The video features cameos by Hieroglyphics members Del The Funky Homosapien, A- Plus (and his son, who features at the beginning of the video), and Phesto, as well as Capcom's own John Diamonon.




Sounds crazy legit right?? Maybe they'll perform some of these cuts on tour, as Souls of Mischief are traveling the world as we speak! They'll be here in Seatown very soon. Peep the calendar for the town nearest you and get hip.
