Blow the dust off your VCR, pop in the unmarked VHS tape; the one you broke the tab off, which generally meant you wanted to save that one; and it’s a 90s MTV World Premier of Palmer Reed’s first official single #Smart. Palmer Reed delivers a nostalgic combination of lyrical flow with ear candy vocals on the Late EDM producer/DJ BIG MAKK and Andre produced track.
Directed By Brill6 of Defined Enterprises, #Smart is filmed from the perspective of you watching the viewer, watching the present from the past, which gives it a back to the future coated flair. The balance of childhood memories between the white noise with resemblance of today’s world is what makes #SMART genius.
#SMART was shot 2 months prior, to the untimely passing of BIG MAKK in Orlando Florida. It serves as one of two last pieces of visionary productions BIG MAKK and Palmer were able to create together. Through the love of creation and giving we are able to see the vision of this Hip Hop, EDM, and cultural mash-up. You will find appearances of BIG MAKK throughout the silhouettes, and still frames layered on top of lit times. This music video is from creatives, that are different which makes them alike. It is something you can’t let the day go by with out seeing for yourself. It’s time to make America smart again.” Watch Below and drop a comment to tell us what you think.
“MAKK WAS A REAL GIFT IN HELPING ME TO EXPAND MY LYRICAL ABILITIES AND VISUAL CREATIVITY BY INCLUDING HIM IN THE VIDEO. I THINK THE BIGGEST THING THAT WILL STICK WITH ALL OF US IS TO JUST KEEP GOING, AND HE WILL LIVE ON THROUGH US.
