New $5 Rap Show footage!

As a new $5 Rap Show is fast approaching (this Friday!), new footage from the last two shows – the album release parties for Timbuktu and Chokeules, respectively – has been posted to the $5 Rap Show YouTube page. And of course, there’s also plenty of footage from previous shows, too!

Here’s a couple of the new videos:

The rest of Swamp Thing (Chokeules and Savilion) joined Timbuktu on stage to perform “Raw Minded” from their sophomore group album, Fire Dogs, for Tim’s The Legend of Howard Huge release party on April 17, 2014…

Ultra Magnus & DJ SLAM! were much loved after impressive performances on both release party nights, but this footage is their performance of “Bill Clinton” (off their upcoming album) from their party-closing set at Choke’s release party for Stay Up on July 11, 2014…
