Vans_Westly Returns with Jumbled-produced & Hand-cut Music Video for "East" from Rapscallion EP (Bandcamp)
Happy New Year to all of our trusty readers out there! Let's hope this year will be better than the last! Today, for our first post of 2021, we're back with new music from Vans_Westly & Jumbled. We've previously featured Vans' 2017 QUILLS EP produced by NelWayne & Drew Scott, which was followed up by Bubble Boy (2018) with beats from Scott & Height Keech and released on Cold Rhymes Records. Vans_Westly's latest release, an EP entitled Rapscallion, fully produced by friend of The Witzard, John Bachman AKA Jumbled. Rapscallion was, actually, released on November's bandcamp Friday last year with 50% of the profits raised going towards Bail Fund and 50% towards BARCS or as Vans himself put it, "100 percent goes to good sh*t!"
Now, as 2021 has kick-started itself into gear, Vans_Westly has returned once more with a proper music video for Rapscallion's third track, "East." "John M. Bachman not only did all the beats for my latest EP, Rapscallion, but he, also, made this dope-a$$ video for the song "East," Vans ecstatically posted on Facebook. Jumbled did, indeed, create said video clip for "East" hand-cut over the holidays from his daughter's construction paper stash and his wife's fashion magazines. It's a simplistic, yet totally fitting, music video for the lush Boom-Bap-reminiscent dusty Jumbled soundscape. "East" ends with a fitting hand-cut tribute, which simply reads "RIP: MOOQUE / MF DOOM."
Upon learning of MF DOOM's sudden passing back on Halloween 2020 this past week, Vans_Westly Tweeted, "BRUH, LIKE, MY ENTIRE LOVE FOR SOUL COMES FROM SAMPLE DIGGING ON DOOM RECORDS. THIS MAN INFLUENCED ME MORE THAN ANYONE F**KKJ." Later, adding "This man is the reason I even touched a pen... This is DEVASTATING [...] The reason I can even rap is 'cause I rapped over, like, EVERY Special [Herbs instrumental] [...] Rest In Peace to the greatest rapper of all time..." within a series of Tweets. Jumbled is currently working on a number of mysterious projects to be revealed throughout 2021. One of which being Classic Rock Breaks, which, as it's working title suggests, samples a gaggle of well-known Classic Rock bands. Vans_Westly's Jumbled-produced Rapscallion EP is currently available on Bandcamp with 100% of proceeds raised to be donated to The Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS) and Bail Fund.
