1. WATCH: Psalm One x R.A. the Rugged Man – “Open Relationship” (Music Video).

    “I first met Psalm in Cincinnati at Scribble Jam where I was performing and she was competing in a battle,” R.A. the Rugged Man says of Psalm One. “She lost a round that I thought she deserved to win so I let her know and we became cool.” So cool that they collab-ed on “Open Relationship” – kinda like one of those traditional relationship rap/love songs, except the relationship is, to quote Prodigy, all fucked up and real shitty. This music video – directed by R.A. – has it all: comedy, interracial love, a cameo by Freddie Foxxx, R.A. bedding two chicks and showing off his Guy and Today cassettes, and dramatic dialogue like, “What you doin’ up in the bed cuddling up with two beautiful women? How could you not invite me?” Read more of the auteur’s directorial insights (including which Freddie Jackson vid it loosely parodies) at R.A. the Rugged Man’s official website .
