Savemoney, the crew at the forefront of Chicago hip hop for 2014, delivers their video STILL ALIVE, an anthem featuring members Joey Purp and Kami de Chukwu (Leather Corduroys) along with appearances by Vic Mensa, Chance The Rapper, Tokyo Shawn, Caleb James, Dally Auston, Brian Fresco and producers Thelonius Martin and Stix (Greg Landfair Jr). Originally set for release in 2013, the video directed by Chicago's own Verluxe was forced to shut down production after members were robbed at gun point during the shoot. As their schedules became increasingly difficult to coordinate due tour plans and recording sessions, the video was put on hold. Recently, the crew got together in Chicago to finish the video and prove that they're STILL ALIVE. Look out for much more music from this collective including a Leather Corduroys LP slated for release this year, Tokyo Shawn's "Wave Theory" and a new Donnie Trumpet project.
Directed by: Verluxe Song produced by: Thelonius Martin and Stix
A year and a half after its initial release, SAVEMONEY crew members’ Kami de Chukwu and Joey Purp‘s exhilarating single “Still Alive” gets a fittingly raucous video (featuring cameos by a majority of the large SAVEMONEY army, with Dally Auston, Tokyo Shawn, Brian Fresco, Vic Mensa, and Chance the Rapper all making appearances). The clip is almost entirely performance based, but it manages to entertainingly capture the song’s electricity. -- P&P
