Ghettosocks – Stolen Kicks ft. PH (aka Pumpkinhead) [Video]
Halifax, NS – Check out the dope visuals for “Stolen Kicks” by Ghettosocks featuring PH aka Pumpkinhead. The video is by no means new but it was never posted on HipHopCanada. We’ve got a lot of work to do to get our Atlantic coverage on point and a lot of that involves going back to see what was missed. We have some new people from the Atlantic provinces getting involved to cover the scene so look out for much deeper coverage in 2013.
“Stolen Kicks” was produced by Bix and the video was directed by Darrell Faria. The song was the third single off Ghettosocks’ Treat of the Day album which is available on iTunes. It came out in 2009 on Droppin’ Science Productions.
More recently, Socks has been promoting the We’re Gonna Drink a Lot of Wine This Year, Boys mixtape which also dropped on Droppin’ Science. The project features Swamp Thing, Muneshine and Torae. One of several releases by Ghettosocks available on iTunes.
