Los Angeles emcee Dumbfoundead partners with Noisey to release his hauntingly vibrant tribute music video “Murals” from his brand new mixtape We Might Die. Produced by the Stereotypes, the hard hitting track shines a light on his urban upbringing in Koreatown while the music video directed by Jay Ahn of Transparent Agency paints his immortalizing future.
Dumbfoundead explains, “’Murals’ is an ode to all the past OGs and legends notorious in our neighborhoods. As a kid I used to walk past these large murals and I always stopped to pay my respects as if they were actual memorials. I hoped that one day I’d also be immortalized on the walls of our liquor stores and bodegas.”
Stay tuned as Dumbfoundead will kick off his We Might Die Tour in Seattle on January 25th. The North American leg will also make stops in Atlanta, Chicago, DC, Toronto, New York and hometown Los Angeles. Joining him on the road will be Virginia duo Year of The Ox who recently scored 9 million Facebook hits with their freestyle Seven Rings partnership alongside Team Backpack. Tour dates are listed below and tickets will be available this Friday here. Fans can also purchase We Might Die merch bundles at: dumbfoundead.com/store.
“Hey guys. I’m going on tour across North America and taking my friends Year of the Ox with me! The We Might Die tour will hit 12 cities and I hope to meet all of you before we DIE!” exclaims Dumbfoundead.
Dumbfoundead’s We Might Die mixtape premiered last week with Complex and features the #1 trending lead single “Safe” that addresses Hollywood’ whitewashing and Asian American stereotypes that was featured on the homepage of CNN, The Los Angeles Times and Al Jazeera. Second single “Harambe” climbed to the Top of the Spotify Viral 50 charts shortly after he premiered his political commentary with The Fader. The 10-track project also includes artists features by Too Short, Jay Park, Nocando, CA$HPASSION, Simon Dominic and G2.
