DJ Sabzi of Seattle hip hop duo Blue Scholars was asked by Ballard native MC Grynch to do a remix of his song "My Volvo." Sabzi agreed with a few specific terms. As Sabzi says, on his new website/blog...
[...]I said “sure buddy, on 3 conditions:
1. you permit me to make the tune sound even more pop-like,
2. you let me follow you around your neighborhood for an afternoon with a camera, and
3. you write an essay about something Ballard-y.”
Today was the unveiling of all three of those things. Click here for a link to the editorial with Grynch's essay, the resulting video, and Sabzi's remix.
and here is the official music video for Grynch's original song, complete with quite a few Ballard scenes..
