Ghost of the Machine (of Savageland) and DJ Proof start off the year with the third installment of their forthcoming comic book-inspired collaboration titled Heroes For Hire 3. The lead single and video taken from the album is “Power Pt. 2” - a lyrical exercise backed by DJ Proof's chopped up ominous strings and neck-snapping drums. Ghost of the Machine brings the proverbial pain on this one and issues a warning to all wack emcees with verbal body blows and lyrical haymakers. In other words, hip-hop’s Luke Cage and Iron Fist are back to clean house.
The video directed by Trill Is Bliss is as gritty as can be and is built on performance shots of Ghost as he does his thing. The Bronx born and Upstate New York raised emcee is all about the culture and of course due to the imposed lockdown he has to follow safety measures in the fresh outdoors.
"Power Pt. 2" is the lead single from Ghost of the Machine and DJ Proof upcoming Heroes For Hire 3, the end product of years of research and development by two of Boom Bap’s most underrated talents.
