Longevity - "Frustrated" - Audio Download

FRUSTRATED isn't an ironic song title; from the personal to the societal, LONGEVITY takes the listener on a tour through the battle for inner peace amid all of life's BS. The video takes his direct narrative sideways into visuals of the artist spitting a sermon Malcolm X/'Falling Down' style, with vintage bullfighting clips and a female matador turned video dancer guiding the spiritual quest for inner peace...all through well composed shots of hazy black and white, punctuated by red anger and blue sadness...both of which seem to be circulating heavily in America these days.

LONGEVITY is a staple of the Los Angeles underground scene, and is one of the most sought out producers of the last decade, having worked with Jurassic Five, Kanye West, KRS One, Fishbone, Psycho Realm, Talib Kwali, Aceyalone, Black Eyed Peas, Pete Rock, Visionaries, Fat Jack, Medusa, C-Minus, J-Rock, D.J. Hive, Otherwize, and many more. His talent at crafting bangers by merging old school hip hop with hardcore rock is undeniable, and on the mike he excels with strong, steady, level headed vocal delivery while speaking the truth with lyrics of a life lived in the hip hop game.
