Words by LargeUp Crew
Long-time LargeUp family Blakkamoore — the artist formerly known as Jahdan — returns today with the lead single from his upcoming album Upward Spiral. “Get Down Tonight” features none other than Snoop Dogg, who brings his royal rap pedigree to the bottom-heavy hip-hop track produced by Paperstars — aka Jahdan and long-time collaborator Andrew ‘Moon’ Bain. That duo previously collaborated with Snoop on his 2013 album Reincarnated, which counted Jahdan and Moon among its all-star cast of songwriters.
The track, streaming now here, comes with a far-out video, animated by French illustrator Bilel, starring Snoop and Blakkamoore as aliens who come to earth to “infect” people with good vibes, then fly back to space after hosting a killer party inside a dormant volcano. (Yes, really).
“It was an awesome experience,” Blakkamoore says of his reunion with Snoop. “Imagine being in the studio with a legend humble enough to give you creative control, talented enough to accomplish whatever we set out to create and high enough to keep things lit the whole time.”
