INJURY RESERVE DROP VIDEO FOR JAWBREAKER FEATURING RICO NASTY
Toronto, ON – January 24, 2019 – Phoenix, Arizona rap trio, Injury Reserve, just dropped a video for a new track, Jawbreaker. The track features Rico Nasty along with fellow Phoenicians, PRO TEENS, and the video was directed by Parker Corey of Injury Reserve. Watch it here.
With the biggest week in fashion around the corner, Jawbreaker is their take on the state of the industry. The video almost acts as a Mystery Science Theater-esque commentary, while remaining true to the elegance of a high-end fashion show.
Stay posted on much more to come from the recent Loma Vista Recordings signees in 2019.
About Injury Reserve
Injury Reserve, a rap trio from Phoenix who recorded their debut mixtape in a dentist’s office (and titled it Live from the Dentist Office), have had an interesting journey from the suburbs to a coveted “A MINUS” from Robert Christgau, the “Dean of American rock critics,” in his column for Noisey. From playing house shows to being played on Beats 1 Radio by Ebro. How did it all happen? What makes producer Parker Corey and rappers Stepa J. Groggs and Ritchie With a T special?
For Complex, it’s their boundary-pushing, “DIY weirdness.” For Billboard, their fashion sense and fearless honesty. Pigeons and Planes admires their group dynamic, calling them “one of the best new groups in hip-hop,” while Mass Appeal nods to their cinematic vision. Anthony Fantano’s interest in their ability to balance tradition with innovation is well-documented on the Needle Drop, where he published an 8/10 review of Live from the Dentist Office, and last year’s Floss. The latter, a major breakthrough for the group with features from Cakes da Killa and Vic Mensa, is energetic, refined, and in Christgau’s words, “the most unpretentious hip-hop you ever heard.”
They moved their studio from the Phoenix dental office, where Corey’s grandfather practices, to a house in Altadena, California. Following a sold-out world tour, they inked a new deal with legendary A&R Hip-Hop as apart of Loma Vista Recordings, and are prepping their debut studio album, set for release this year.
