“The story of your life…who the hell cares? Nobody, if the money ain’t there” Directed by SyncoPatience, “Crumbs” is the third visual project from Original Text’s (Ari Why x Tito Fuerte) debut collaborative EP, The Out Number. “Crumbs” tells a story of the Have’s vs. The Have-Not’s, Reality vs. Perception and Responsibility vs. Ignorance. Modern life creates a struggle for everyone to receive what they feel they’ve earned and deserved. A line is drawn between Giver and Receiver…but there are two sides to every story, and sometimes those lines can be blurry and faded.
Producer/DJ, Ari Why and emcee, Tito Fuerte, have combined to form Original Text and release their debut EP, The Out Number. Both artist have released well-received projects before: Ari Why at the helm of his band, The Invisible College, and Tito Fuerte as a member of the Hip-Hop collective, Raw Nature. The Out Number marks the first time that either has been a part of a 1+1, “He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper” style dynamic that’s been integral to Hip-Hop since the days of Eric B. & Rakim and Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo. Utilizing intricate wordplay, decoded language and a lush, cinematic soundscape, Original Text bring originality, creativity and authenticity back to the forefront.
