Watch Richie Cunning and Crew Get Wrecked in New "Rec Your Life" Video

Local rapper and All Shook Down Fest veteran Richie Cunning and his Rec League aren't exactly role models, kids -- they like drinking, and they like drinking a lot.

"Rec League in the building/Raise the flag/Start takin' Beam shots like laser tag/We gonna black out like it was all a dream/About two turntables and a fog machine," Cunning raps in "Rec Your Life," an old-school, funky ode to getting messed up. Cunning trades off with Haji P, Rob Rush, and QM, dozens style, each dishing about his love for booze.

The song is off Cunning's Late Night Special mixtape from 2009, but the video is new. What better way to visualize a song about drinking than to stick the whole crew in the back of a moving van, pounding Budweisers as the camera slips in and out of focus? As viewers, we get to feel as disoriented and messy as they do.

Hit the jump to watch the video and get all woozy.

If you like what you hear, catch Cunning with Action Bronson at 330 Ritch on Aug. 24.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
