1. It is rare these days to hear all of your favorite local emcees on a single track collaborating with each other. The track "Clock's Ticking" and its accompanying music video provide a rare opportunity to do that with, in this case, some of Washington DC's finest. The track provides a window into the diversity of the hip hop scene in DC. With DC legend Raheem Devaughn holding down the chorus and local producer Choppy Choppe on the beat, the track celebrates the game of Chess in honor of local community arts organization Words, Beats & Life's annual Bumrush the Boards Chess Tournament. The song's title is a reference to the concept of "beating the clock", a style of chess play in which opposing players are challenged between moves by a time clock. The collaboration was organized by DJ RBI (Ill Street Grooves/Diamond Cutterz) with assistance from Theory (PKG), and features Raheem Devaughn, yU, Laelo, Oddisee, Tabi Bonney, Noyeek the Grizzly Bear, Draus, and Choppy Choppe. The video was co-produced by Words, Beats & Life and Nomadic Wax. As Co-Director of the video, it marks DJ RBI's directorial debut. Enjoy!
