Teddo November Debut Music Video For "Jimmy The Pig"
It's always very inspiring seeing an artist talk about real life happenings in their community that is usually unfavorable for people of other races.
The anticipation grew so much that the video leaked first on Hip Hop video world where it got over a thousand views. Seeing the response 'Jimmy The Pig' video got, Teddo decided to release it officially. 'Jimmy The Pig' was written based on the personal experience of sniper Mark Essex. Teddo told the story of how Mark broke down mentally and resulted in the unfortunate event taking many lives. This event was even more tragic because Mark along with innocent bystanders lost there life. "Although the story was published over the newspapers, it seems to never get old," said Teddo.
The understanding that events like this happen a lot in communities and nothing gets done to stop it from happening in the future made Teddo take advantage of his acting background to get this project down. The real-life experiences Teddo expressed in this track and the entire album LATE BUT GREAT is brilliantly backed up by amazing beats.
Teddo has lots more visuals coming from his album and he has also used it as an avenue to tell stories such as Mark Essex especially during the Howard Johnson Shootout. It takes a talented and experienced rapper to use his raps and tell a story which people get drawn to. Although the Howard Johnson Shootout happened a long time ago it's quite sad that because of the similar experiences that Teddo who was also born in New Orleans has gone through, he completely understood how helpless people felt during the unfortunate event. Teddo said, "it's unfortunate that Mark had to result in violence in order to get his message across so I want to create a different bridge between the community and the police". This album does a lot of talking for people who don't have the voice to tell a story.
