Rockford’s The Last Wordbender is gearing up to debut his next, full length album this summer entitled “Rumble In The Rock”. We got a slight taste of what to expect from the project when Wordbender delivered the lead off single, “Fast Food & No Sleep”, at the start of 2017. During that time, the Illinois emcee and spoken word poet promised a video to back the DJ BrickRock-produced anthem for the starving artist.
Well, that time has come as The Last Wordbender presents the official video, directed by fellow Rockford native, Pistolz Productions. TLW looks towards his own life experiences and some of Rockford’s go to fast food spots to bring the single to life. We witness as he punches the clock at his prior retail gig while bouncing between shows, writing music and pursuing his music career. This is done on little to no sleep whatsoever. All the while, he fuels his drive on food from spots like Happy Wok, Da Catch and a hometown staple point, Uncle Nick’s.
As with alot of Wordbender’s material, he puts his hometown of Rockford on his back while spitting real life lyrics, completed by a classic Rakim sample. To all of those out there juggling a similar situation, this one’s for you. Here’s The Last Wordbender‘s “Fast Food & No Sleep”.
Check out The Last Wordbender performing in the Rockford area on the following dates:
- April 29th at Mandalay Lounge
- Friday, May 5th at the Revolu-Senerio Art Show at the R-Strong Movement Facility
- Sunday May 7th at Katie’s Cup
He will also host a “Rumble In The Rock” listening party and concert, when the album releases this summer.
