Blue Scholars
To celebrate the release of the group’s new conceptual album titled Cinemetropolis, local hip-hop duo Blue Scholars premiered a short film for the first single off the ablum, “Slick Watts”. Based on the former Sonics player turned Franklin High School basketball coatch, Watts himself stars in the video alongside MC Geologic and DJ/Producer Sabzi. The short also contains shout-outs to several distinct Seattle neighborhoods and fond references to Seattle’s former basketball team. Fittingly, the short was directed by Jason Reid and the crew responsible for the award-winning documentary Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team, which retold the rich history of Seattle’s basketball culture and the heartache of the Sonics’ relocation to Oklahoma City in 2008. Cinemetropolis, the Blue Scholars third studio album, was funded entirely by a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. Watch the short film for “Slick Watts” below.
