It’s a UK backpack-rap wet-dream as Mancunian knob-twiddler Pete Cannon teams up with Dr Syntax, Jehst and US West Coast Hiero legend Del The Funky Homosapien for ode to libertarianism Do What We Wanna Do. It’s a throwback to that kind of turn-of-the-millenium beat where it was the law that any video had to be a moving hand-held p.o.v. job shot through a fish eye lens with lots of trippy psychedelic filters. In this instance, I imagine we’d be viewing said emcees throwing social convention and conformity to the four winds and…well…just doing what they wanted to whether it be smoking weed in public, clubbing naked (Jehst is down for both of those) and leaving the toilet seat up when they’d finished. Or something.
