â€œMy homie lonely homie walking and we talking for sure And Iâ€™m gonna be with him in the end when forgiveness no more And â€˜member the words canâ€™t hurt me how can I be worthy When I feel so damn dirty dirtyâ€
— Bizzy Bone from â€œA Song For Youâ€
BIZZY BONE and DMX, two of hip-hopâ€˜s most distinctive voices and most enduring personalities, will trade close-ups on January 21 when they turn a Phoenix, Arizona cemetery into a video set for the shooting of the video for BIZZY BONEâ€™S new single, â€œA Song For You.â€ The song, which is a collabo with DMX, is the second release from BIZZYâ€™s album of the same name, due March 25.
Video director Ethan Lader describes the concept of the shoot: â€œThe passion, the power, the pain will be brought to life through this video,â€ he says. â€œItâ€™s about vibe, mood, and imagery. We will journey with BIZZY BONE as he travels through a prolific cemetery; a cemetery that has all the fallen soldiers of our hip-hop community buried together, united together. The vibe throughout is one of hope and strength.â€ A SONG FOR YOU is BIZZYâ€™S first release for Phoenix, Arizona-based After Platinum Records. The CD also features an eclectic array of talent, including Good Charlotte, Trina, X-Man, Jim Jones, Twista, and After Platinum artist Chris Notez, who joins BIZZY on â€œA Song For You,â€ a poignant track that includes an interpolation of Donny Hathawaysâ€™s original recording of the same name. The single will be available on iTunes, AOL Music and other digital outlets starting January 15.
