What does it take to be a rapper? What kind of shape need one be in to rock the m.i.c.? Well, when you’re rapping with Imperial you must be in peak physical condition. If not, he’ll serve as the motivator you never had and possibly wanted. Enter K.I.N.E.T.I.K. who is Imperials partner in rhyme on Pencils Not Pistols, which is out now Illect Recordings. Imperial pushes his compadre to the limit, helping him achieve the goals and results which will result in nothing short of lyrical superiority. They have there tough times along the way, I mean who drop kicks cheeseburgers? Those cheeseburgers did nothing to you man, what’s up with that? And did you see the anger Imperial slapped the chicken nugget away. What’s McDonalds ever done to you? Agnes & Lupus did a great job directing the Rocky-inspired video for “Go Hard” which also features Tone Richardson on the hook. The video is fun and goofy but the message is right on point, keep pushing and all your dreams can come true.
