Spekulation probably doesn’t want to be known as the Seattle rap game Sean Connery (ie. forever attached to a starring role he made famous), so I won’t mention Spek’s recent 15 minutes of fame save for linking here in case you don’t watch Good Morning America or read major Seattle newspapers.

In any case, the man dropped his new EP, Truth Be Told, three days ago and it contains the usual care and attention to boom-bap detail that Spek is coming to be known for. Give the album a spin below and go here to see about the MC/producer’s extracurricular activities.

VIDEO: “All The Soldiers” – Spekulation (feat. Okanomode; dir. by. Chris Volckmann)

Spekulation dropped “All The Solders”, the first single from his upcoming Truth Be Told EP, last week, and followed it up with the visuals above. From the press:

Like the song, the video takes a personal look at the problem of violence in our society. The film focuses on a handful of people living in fear of the violence that has become a part of American life.  It is a subtle film that poses powerful questions about how we choose to live our lives in the face of fear and uncertainty.

Amid all the Bitter Barista drama, Spekulation still found time to drop a single from his upcoming EP, Truth Be Told. “All The Soldiers” is a politically-charged lament concerning America’s obsession with violence. Let the holier-than-thou snark police at Sprudge find something wrong with this.
