Music video for the song "The Cause" from the album "The Day The Sun Bled" by The FORTYSEVEN.

Animation by Kenn Stollery-Jones, featuring artworks by SWISS PRECISE.

The FORTYSEVEN is a one-off project by Long Beach hip hop stalwarts SWISS PRECISE, HOCHII, MASTER FUOL, MONK LIVERFISH, DJ REMODE & DJ ILL NAUGHTY.

This music video features rotoscoping from some famous old samurai movies and original graf and graf-style art pieces by Swiss Precise. Both of these make for a big file, unfortunately. Bitmaps have been scaled down for uploading to NewGrounds.

The language rating is for a couple of nasty swears right at the end of the song.

This music video can also be viewed on YouTube, with uncompressed backgrounds and full stereo sound... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orsfBwfvqVM

I'm not a big rap fan..but

But that was a very deep, empowering song, no matter the style of the artist, rock or rap, if the tunage is upbeat enough, its a real lethal song, full of meaning, good enough to unleash anyone's inner warrior. This could be a theme song for a real badass samurai warrior, should you ever make a flash video movie that has to do with real badass samurai warriors.. The girl bellowing with her voice in the background really added to the effect the song gives overall. I know its a song you didn't make up, but I still felt like talking about it anyway.

The video was decent for the song, but in my opinion, it didn't really need the rappers included in the video, but still that doesn't take away from the score.

The art and animation was decent, I got a few retro hints, that went well with a few features of the song.

And if anyone disagrees with that, and they're eyes are slanting, its just the ganja, definetely the ganja. ;)

Nice work thanks for uploading it.
