“Dirty 30” is a music video/hybrid short from MC Bravado that marries his usual barrage of technical virtuosity with a “Fight Club” homage. Produced by longtime collaborator Militant Marxman, the hard-hitting “Succession” inspired sample flip provides the perfect canvas for the MC B to lob shots at detractors questioning his life and career choices.
Actor Jesse O’Neill (of “Watchmen”, “Godzilla”, and “Hightown” premiering on STARZ this fall) costars as Richie, a man who is at his breaking point after many years of resisting societal norms. Directed by Nick Palmer, a Fincher fanatic, the enthralling visual plays like a love letter to the source material while bolstering the strengths of the new talent involved.
MC Bravado is an emcee/educator from Baltimore by way of New York. A former English Teacher, his brand of everyman but dense and visceral lyricism marries influences from Lupe Fiasco to Johnny Cash. He’s received noteworthy press across mediums, including but not limited to CBS, FOX, ABC, CNN, Yahoo!, SiriusXM Shade45, Billboard, HipHopDX, Okayplayer, DJBooth, HotNewHipHop, The Source, The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Magazine, Earmilk, and REVOLT TV. A major stage veteran (Warped Tour, SXSW, A3C) with a penchant for giving back to the youth (through nonprofits like Baltimore’s Beats Not Bullets), MC B is showing and proving his way to a rarefied air.
