New music and video from Big Piph

Posted By on Fri, Mar 7, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Little Rock's Big Piph has had a more interesting year than any of us, and he's here to rub it in with his new video, "I Am Not Them," which finds him rapping, lecturing and globe-hopping around at least a handful of African countries. Feel like I expanded my horizons just by watching this thing. Also that little kid in the tracksuit break-dancing around 2:07 is a revelation, a moment not likely to be topped in a local video this year.

"I Am Not Them" is from 2012's "Such is Life" tape, but he also has a new project on the way, "The Calm," due out March 19. Here at Rock Candy, we even got our hands on the first single: "Balance (Let 'Em Know)," featuring DJ Discipline. Don't get distracted by the man's podium, he goes in here over some slick country-rap bass and orchestral sweep. Check it out below.

    This week's singles round-up is a day late since I've been out of town for a week reporting on rare mushrooms in Star City, but I promise it represents the very best of the new Arkansas music you missed in the last several days, with country songs and weed raps and doom metal that doesn't sound anything like doom metal.
