Acclaimed hip hop producer J57 and eclectic singer/songwriter/musician Matt Stamm joined forces to form MAK3RS, a production duo. I've been lucky enough to know both these gentlemen and also had the privilege of listening to some of their finished but unmastered tracks.
Being a fan of their music, I was extra stoked when they asked me to be the first(?) to shoot them. Originally, our plan was to shoot them inside a liquor store since they are named after Makers Mark, the bourbon but things fell apart last minute. Luckily, our friend and musician Katiah came to the rescue to provide us locations in the UWS where many of The Warriors scenes took place.
If you get a chance, make sure to check out the Mak3rs beatmaking session here.
