While RJD2 has produced for many prominent rappers, he is mainly known as a producer who specializes in instrumentals. Ever since his track “Ghostwriter” from his 2002 album Deadringer blew up and was showcased on TV/in movies, RJD2 has become a household name in the sub-genre. After releasing his fifth studio album (More Is Than Isn’t) last October, RJD2 has now released visuals for a standout cut off the project “Descended From Myth” and they are impressive to say the least. The album is a return to RJD2’s roots in a certain respect due to the compilation of horn-based break beats and “Descended From Myth” is a fitting representation of that notion. 

“Descended From Myth” is filled with sounds of brass instrumentation and the music video masterfully reflects it with images of a musical machine at work. There a lot of moving parts in the video, so it is important to keep your eyes peeled throughout the entire duration. RJD2 briefly described the concept behind the video directed by Thom Glunt:

“Thom Glunt’s idea for “Descended From Myth” was a perfect fit for the song. I’ve been asked time and time again, ‘How do you make your records? What does the process look like?’ So the idea that the song came from a massive musical automaton of sorts seemed to be a great narrative for a song like this.”

We couldn’t agree more RJD2. Even if you are not a fan of instrumental hip-hop, it is hard not to appreciate the creativity behind the visuals that bring the music to life. This is a common way of describing music videos, but it is fully appropriate in this case as Thom Glunt did a fantastic job.
