This edition of Unpeeled finds us in a smoke filled studio room, under dim candlelight, as rapper/visual artist Old Grape God spits some riddled bars about enemies, graffiti, and having a grip — all while painting up a blank canvas.
A relaxed combo of hand drums, tambourines, bass, and flutes float together to form a loose beat behind Grape God. As the song goes on, the beat gets infectious and Grape God’s lyrics get stronger and more pronounced. This video captures a special vibe you’ll have to see for yourself, check it out!
“Candlelit Vandal” (Marbletop Version) was performed by Old Grape God and the Time Travelers and was recorded February 20th, 2016 in Portland, Oregon. The video features footage from camera operator and edited by Darren Hartman. Audio for this video was recorded and mixed by Adam Harney.
