VIDEO ▲: C Plus x Lee Bannon - "Real Estate" + Behind The Scenes Q&A
Directed by Shoot Life
C Plus releases the second visual from his C Plus x Lee Bannon Young Champions EP, directed by Erick Lee, in Sacramento, CA. Download their free EP at ThirdLetta.com.
I also took some time to talk with C Plus about the video. See below.
BrandTROY: Wussup, Plus! You just released a new video from your Young
Champions EP titled "Real Estate", where was it shot?
C Plus: We shot this new visual at a hydration plant that goes over the Sacramento river. It's some crazy s**t, really. We were joking that the government probably had a missile silos (missile launch facility) hidden under it. Haha!
BrandTROY: Lol. That's crazy! So you and Director Erick Lee have a long relationship when it comes to reel. How is it working with him?
C Plus: Yeah, Erick is my boy, and we grew up together. It's dope having someone that knows you that well working with you, 'cause they're always gonna keep it 100 with you, and hold no shorts. We got a lot of very cool stuff on deck for 2013.
BrandTROY: With this as the second visual off of Young Champions, and the first visual being "Does It Better", what's going to be the third?
C Plus: We're going to do one more video off YC, and it's going to be "MPN" (Most Paid Ni**a). I think it's the dopest video yet too. All the videos are shot in that same kind of psychedelic, trippy feel, but "MPN" is dope 'cause there's a little storyline hidden in it.
BrandTROY: Okay, dope! Storylines are always appreciated. Before I forget, the song "Real Estate" actually has a second verse on the EP, but only the first is in the video, why's that?
C Plus: We only shot one verse for it 'cause we actually shot the video on the fly. We probably would've knocked the second verse out, but security was closing the location down, and the sun was setting.
BrandTROY: Lastly, I know you're 'bout that Studio life, what are you cooking up to release after Young Champions leaves its mark?
C Plus: We're gonna drop a Chopped & Screwed version of YC then I'll start releasing videos and music off my sophomore album, LOCAL.
