Enter The “Barz In Da Bando” Video Series By Cray Vizion

There’s a certain level of personage you get when an artist takes the Nas ‘One Mic’ approach and performs a verse or song. Simply featuring the artist, the environment, a beat (or acapella) and a microphone. You see the essence of the artist, no distractions, just the creator and their music.

The “Barz In Da Bando” series by Cray Vizion has been a rising video platform that gives a high quality, unique performance avenue for Charleston rappers to shine.

Seemingly inspired by formats like From the Block and COLORS live performance series, “Barz In Da Bando” is a series of live, on the spot performances from various underground rap artists.

Cray Vizion catches a live, outdoor, performance in the cut of an old, abandoned brick building in an undisclosed location. I love the fact that Cray Vizion doesn’t shift locations with “Barz In Da Bando”, because it presents a raw, grunge to the mainly street rap artist driven series.

The very first “Barz In Da Bando” video aired November 2021 and features Charleston artist GeechieLord.

Check out a few of my favorite performances in the series from MacG DaSauce, NiMo Bluus, Zion G, Beshezy, and Black Benji below, and subscribe on Youtube to stay up-to-date!
