On the latest episode of OffBeat Radio, rapper, audio engineer and owner of The Hut Studios A. Levy discussed his latest album, Reparations. A powder keg featuring controversial cover art inspired by the presidential administration comprised of songs with titles like “Django,” “Emancipation,” “If I Was White” and “Black Boy,” the LP is arguably his most consequential to date and the culmination of a desire to prove that New Orleans hip-hop can be as conceptual as that from any other city.
For his second single and latest music video, premiering today (March 15) at OffBeat.com, A. Levy chose to feature a track focusing more on perseverance than politics. “Barry Sanders” is inspired by the drive and resilience of his favorite football player of the same name and touches on A. Levy’s 14-year journey in the music industry. Well known for his frequent references to sports, the Gentilly native opted to film the video (shot by Rafael Medina) in his childhood playground, Ponchartrain Park. Check it out
