VIDEO: Romaro Franceswa’s “The Big Payback”

Heading 200 miles west down the I-90 leads me to the 206, and when I say 206 I speak of the area code of Seattle, which is the home of Romaro Franceswa. What I see is a hip-hop video with nuns, so all my attention is paid on it and the song “The Big Payback”. Oh wait: there’s cocaine in this. Oh wait, now the nuns are head nodding. YES! Seattle’s diversity continues to reveal itself, and Romaro Franceswa understands what it means to become the cream of the crop. Bean One produced this morsel, no cookies involved.

For the low end groove, a vibe, a feeling, something that will mean something for you, get lost not just at a mere glance, but the fool look. “The Look Of Love”, that is.

This is from the forthcoming Unearthed compilation on Coalmine, scoop this up.
