As a partial higher-up at a hip-hop site myself, I truly appreciate it when a site is able to put together a project such as Closed Sessions. The free 14-track project was a result of the work done by Ruby Hornet, DJ RTC, and and Soundscape Recordings. And it’s no slouch when it comes to features, either, as it boasts verses from the likes of Curren$y, Donnis, Rapper Big Pooh, Tanya Morgan, and Skyzoo.
Oh, of course, the first Closed Sessions volume also contains “Happiness Before Riches,” which has Bun B, BJ the Chicago Kid, and GLC doing their thing over an uptempo dirty South banger that then gets brought to life in the above video. Apparently, the visuals stem from when Bun was traveling to Austin, where GLC was recording tracks with Freddie Gibbs for Closed Sessions Austin. And, in between concerts and studio time, GLC and Bun were able to somehow shoot this video. Grind hard, indeed.
