Watch All of the Videos for Ka’s “Grief Pedigree” LP

As 2012 winds down and the debate over hip-hop album of the year heats up we may forget some of the great releases that dropped in the spring or the summer. One such release was Ka’s self-released Grief Pedigree album. The Brownsville, Brooklyn’s depiction of street life in his ‘hood were dark but vivid and understated yet profound.

In a stroke of genius he directed excellent low to no budget videos for every song on the album–finally capping everything off with a video for “Iron Age” featuring his partner in Metal Clergy and fellow rap album of 2012 candidate, Roc Marciano. Some YouTuber had the good sense to remind us of Ka’s awesomeness by stringing together every video from Grief Pedigree to make it one nearly 40-minute experience and we found it enthralling. Now you know what we’ve been doing for the last 40 minutes.

Check out the Ka Grief Pedigree super cut above and cop the album on iTunes if you don’t already have it.
