Taiyamo Denku is always hard at work. Whether he’s in the studio knocking tracks out with a long list of Hip Hop veterans or touring across the nation, Denku continues to prove that Hip Hop flows thru his blood stream. Just having released the “Riot Control (Maxi-Single)”, the Milwaukee mic slayer revisits 2016 and the “What If I Did An Album With Nick Wiz” project with CTM Films to film a video for the fan favorite, “Smackdown”.
The video features another Milwaukee emcee, John Doe, as things open with Taiyamo explaining the performance concept behind the single. The lens than follows an ice-grilled Denku thru crumbled brick buildings and graffiti laced alleyways as he spills clever punchlines in true Cypha Den Music fashion. It’s a cleanly shot flick that showcases the emcee’s ability to move a crowd with his animated body language and demeanor.
“Smackdown” is a warm-up to the forthcoming album, “The Book of Cypha Den”, that will feature songs with Snoop Dogg, Wise Intelligent, Afu-Ra, Blueprint, Mikey D of Main Source and more with production from Dcypha and Beatminerz. Peep the video on YouTube below.
