Portland hip hop luminary, Ben Shorr, has just released a new single, “Mad Flava” from his forthcoming album, “Spiritual Dysmorphia” on Hip-Hops Entertainment, 2020. The new track featuring one half of legendary platinum recording duo Das EFX, Krazy Drayz, captures the 1990’s hip-hop vibe in a 2020’s world. It was recorded at the legendary Halo Studio in Windham, Maine, and produced by Ben Shorr, Andre Weston & Jake Wertman.
The song will be the second single, and part of Ben Shorr’s first release since his critically praised “Pyrokinesis” LP (2017). For “Mad Flava,” we are thrilled to have collaborated with videographer Augustus Minott of RSNL Media, LLC.
Due to the Coronavirus crisis, our tours, releases, video shoots, and everything else under-the-sun are getting canceled. So, we turned to Augustus Minott to create a visually stimulating lyrics video that captures the urban essence of our hip-hop lifestyles, including landscapes, drone footage, subways, and sunsets to create a real narrative with this back and forth mellow song. You might even see some familiar locations if you look closely. — Ben Shorr
