Locals Only III

Similar to the first Locals Only post, this one will feature an amazing director with an ear for great music. Jon Jon Augustavo, a Seattle native, graduated from Washington State University in the communications program. He's a truly creative director, on this blog I've already posted several videos of his by Eighty4 Fly and Scribes but believe me when I tell that there will be several other ones.

Jon Jon has created a series titled "Good Times" with the intent of offering more that music videos by hip hop artists but also give the viewers and the fans a story of the artists. The first installment features Chicago area, DC-born rhymesayer, Dave Coresh. "Dave Coresh scribes melodies that bob heads, moves feet and affects the crowd with his powerful vibe. As an MC, one must be able to Move the Crowd, and with smooth beats accompanying his distinctive flow, the crowd falls victim to his vibrant charisma. Such is the bravado of Dave Coresh. Proclaimed as the ‘Boy Wonder in the Flesh’, Dave Coresh hails from DC. He moved to Chicago to live with his aunt after his mother was stunted by drug abuse and father became impeded by an arrest. The roots of his musical influences stem from family ties, which have a history of Church Choir singers and band members jazzing to the beat of the Go-Go Music Movement. Drawn to Hip Hop by the competitive aspect of Battle Rap, the skills of Coresh developed through countless evenings Freestyling against an array of lyrical opponents. With intricate lyrics holding universal concepts that a wide range of listeners can groove to without hesitation, Dave’s goal is to spark emotions through the use of his words. It’s been a year since Dave began to pursue a career in Hip Hop, and as his buzz grows, he stays humbled by the opportunity to spread his music."
