End It go to the Playa Hater’s Ball in video for new song “Hatekeeper”
Baltimore hardcore band End It have announced a new EP, Unpleasant Living, due July 8 via Flatspot Records (pre-order). The first single is "Hatekeeper," which comes with a tongue-in-cheek video inspired by the Playa Hater's Ball from Chappelle's Show, and frontman Akil tells Afropunk that the song is "about gatekeeping hardcore. It’s about keeping the tourists from getting comfortable enough to dictate what’s right and what’s wrong. Knowing they won’t be around to deal with the after-effects." The video also begins with this message:
For decades, the American hardcore scene has been infiltrated by posers, marks, fresh cuts, mark ass tricks, herbs, scabs, nazis, dick riders, line steppers, skeezers, creeps, clowns, lames, 3 year tours, keyboard warriers, and lifers.....
Now Baltimore City Hardcore and Flatspot Records bring you another side of the story as we enter the world of the Haters.
End It proudly presents.... Tha Playa Haters Ball.
