Kalae All Day | O.G.LYRIKALBOOKBAGGER f/Homeboy Sandman (2010)

Noisemaker Media aligns creative forces with emcee/singer/songwriter Kalae All Day to present her debut music video “O.G.LYRIKALBOOKBAGGER” featuring Homeboy Sandman.

As the first in a collaborative video series, Director Mark Carranceja paints a vibrantly swift invitation for viewers to be the first to experience “afromatic-neo hippie-rockstar-soul music.” His signature aesthetic, combined with Kalae’s wellspring of soulful Hip Hop flows and neo afro punk melodies, provides a snapshot of the next phase of visual and genre-bending experimentation.
