D.Black A Freshman

01/12/2010
.
Seattle emcee D.Black has been nominated in this week's contest for MTV'u's The Freshman 5 for his first video "Yesterday" off his sophomore album Ali'Yah. Every week, five new and upcoming artists are presented an opportunity to gain regular rotation on the MTVu channel, which is exclusively broadcasted to college campuses and gives artists an excellent shot at obtaining exposure.

Set underneath a freeway overpass (perhaps the road that separates heaven and hell?), the video depicts an epic chess game for D.Black's soul. Light and dark versions of the emcee face off against each other, with supporters shrouding and encouraging each player. The video's lesson is to allow yourself to leave things, especially negative things, in your past. He combines this message with smooth, flowing rhymes and a classic soul feel, set over warm production by B. Brown and D. Black himself.

Fans are encouraged to vote as many times as they like starting at 11am until the cutoff 2pm EST on Friday. Music fans can vote for D.Black on the MTVu website
