The Video:

Sir Michael Rocks “Fuck SeaWorld” video created a stir last week, as the rapper/producer talked with MTV News about sneaking into SeaWorld to film it. Inspired by the documentary Blackfish, Rocks’ statement against the mistreatment of animals drew the attention of PETA, who shared the visual in support, even including the #FuckSeaWorld hashtag.

With his long-awaited solo debut album Banco set to be released next Tuesday, July 29th, Rocks traveled to Los Angeles to team up with Iamsu! and Casey Veggies for “Bussin.” Filmed in a haunted mansion, the video premieres via AV Club. The audio released earlier this month, and has since eclipsed 130K listens on SoundCloud. Called a “perfect soundtrack for adding a little human sacrifice to your summer BBQs,” by Noisey in their debut of the single, the track is quickly becoming a club banger and house-party favorite. Complete with eerie balloons and suspicious decor, Rocks inherits the houses spooky vibes. “I wanted it to be like Jack Nicholson’s old scary movie with the twins in the hotel hallways,” he says in an interview with XXL, referencing The Shining.

The album, Banco, shows Sir Michael at his most inventive and features Too $hort, Mac Miller, Twista, Iamsu, Trinidad James, Casey Veggies, Robb Bank$, Pouya, and Chuck Inglish, as well as production from DJ Mustard. The album will be released on July 29th on his own 6 Cell Phones label and is available for pre-order. Sir Michael Rocks also recently announced via Twitter that The Cool Kids will be ending their hiatus and reuniting to release their highly anticipated album, Shark Week, by the end of the year. This will mark the first album The Cool Kids will have released since their 2011 album When Fish Ride Bicycles.

Sir Michael Rocks Background:

Sir Michael Rocks has always been a little ahead of his time, a little more original than his peers, a little bit more creative. As a teenager, he started making music under the name Mikey Rocks as one half of groundbreaking duo The Cool Kids. Formed over the Internet and powered by a strong grassroots fanbase online, the group helped redefine the image of rap for the Internet era with an effortlessly cool throwback style and an iconic, laid-back fashion sense. Rechristening himself as Sir Michael Rocks in 2011, the restlessly creative artist, now based in Miami after time spent in Chicago and LA, has been pushing the boundaries of rap originality even further in recent years with a string of popular, critically acclaimed mixtapes. As he explores an increasingly far-ranging set of ideas and prepares his solo debut album, Banco, the lifelong impulse to explore and innovate remains at the forefront of what Rocks is trying to accomplish.
