Testament’s Alex Skolnick Releases New Rap Song “B.I.G. L.I.E.”
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Hu$h Money is a rap duo featuring Skoly-D and Kimmy G. Check out their first video “B.I.G. L.I.E,” a take on the events that took place one year ago, January 6, 2021.
“B.I.G. L.I.E.” deals with plenty of non-laughing matters, yet we can all use a little comic relief,” says Skoly-D, who is rumored to be the song’s composer and producer, Alex Skolnick, well known as a celebrated guitarist of metal and jazz (he and Skoly have never been seen in the same room). “What better way to point out the absurdity of it all than some classic rap grooves with humor inspired by the Founding Father of funny sociopolitical music, Mr. Zappa? We don’t expect to change any minds here, but hope that whether someone agrees with the song or not, they will—at the very least—be entertained. And for those who aren’t: We eagerly await your online rants and zingers. Make ‘em good!”
“You can see the fun we had doing this. It’s right there!“ adds Kimmy G (Kimmy Gordon).
Directed by Frankie Fulleda, “B.I.G. L.I.E.” Shot “guerilla style” in July 2021 at the Fox News HQ, Times Square and Washington Square Park, “B.I.G L.I.E.” is as much a tribute to New York, it’s resilience and ever present wackiness, as it is a takedown of nationwide right-wing echo chambers. In a t-shirt emblazoned with the oversized logo of the influential Run-DMC, Skoly skewers Fox News, election denialism and insurrection revisionism.
The video also features comic J-Hype (Jonathan Hyppolite) and Karl Lake, best known as “Robot Guy” from Chappelle’s Show. Hot tip: Alex, Kimmy and the video director once performed on the Maury show, under the name Vicious DNA.
