So this is where it all started. This was my introduction to the Hip-Hop scene. With the help of Klashnekoff, Kyza, Skriblah, Skinnyman, Supar Nova, Nasser, Ahmos & Wordsmith the name "Genesis Elijah" was thrust into the UK Hip-Hop limelight.
This was the front cover. It featured AC, Terra Slim, Dubbledge, Deadly Avenger and my mate Delroy. DJ Whitecoat was also on it but was airbrushed out cos he was wearing white and it looked a bit weird...Sorry bruv.
This is a pic we used for the CD inlay. I think Keira was about 4 months at the time.....She's almost 6 now!
The "So Hip-Hop" video shoot was jokes! I'm not sure what me and Ahmos were doing here but we seem to be having a good time. In this pic we got (left to right) Richard West aka Neehi who made the beat, Me, AC, Street Philosopher, Ahmos, Dubbledge, Answer & Gramma Charlie.
The girl schooling the guy is a rapper called Shakespeare, she featured on AC & Terra's "Human Trash" mixtape. The guy is my cousin Joshua.
Tom the director put this whole thing together. I think it came out pretty good.
The brea getting boyed off is Neehi! I had him wear my hat and T-Shirt. Too funny!
This was one of the last scenes. In this pic we got me, Dubbledge, Terra Slim, Answer (Almost looking hard!) & Gramma Charlie.
Tom takes the last shots before we duck out. Me and my girl agued all the way home cos she wanted to be in the video and the director didn't ask her to.
For more details on the album please check my earlier blog "Deh Pon Road Revisited". If you got this already thats cool but if you've never heard it please take this opportunity to give it a listen and see what all the fuss was about.
