3flection – Hooked

Another artist who sent me a submission via e-mail, I really enjoy this one. There’s a pretty deep message in there about big-oil. Here’s the press release they sent:

3flection and F5 Entertainment would like to send you their new politically-charged music video: “Hooked.”   “Hooked” is a hip hop video that makes a major statement against “Big Oil” and American oil consumption using the analogy of a violent drug addict that is ruining not only his own life, but the lives of others around him.  Filmed in St. Paul MN, the video is a gritty representation of an issue that the artists feel is plaguing the country.   The track is produced by hit-maker Sean Divine, and is an entry for his video contest.

3flection is a Wisconsin transplant who now calls the booming Twin Cities hip hop scene his own.  His thought-provoking and honest lyrical style draws comparisons to artists such as Atmosphere, Macklemore, and Grieves, and his high energy performances have been garnering him plenty attention over the past year.   3flection’s latest project, “The Best Intentions EP” was released for free in March 2012, and he is preparing to release a new solo project entitled “Doses of Reality” this summer.

F5 Entertainment is an independent video production company located in Eau Claire, WI.  The company brings Hollywood style video to the Midwest, and their work has not gone unnoticed: the last three F5-produced videos have surpassed 40,000 views.

This video has surpassed 626,000. Watch it below:

You can download the song “Hooked” at 3flection’s soundcloud page, and download his previous albums for free via his website. Also you can follow him on Facebook or Twitter to stay updated. You can watch more of F5’s videos via their website, and follow them on facebook or twitter.
