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.
