Atlanta native Crucifix has released his new video for the track "Chernobyl" online at https://smarturl.it/ChernobylOfficial. The video was shot in the radioactive dead zone of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukraine, the site of the largest nuclear disaster in history.
"When we hear "Chernobyl" there's a natural intrigue that takes over whether we know what really happened there or not. We get this haunting picture of some abandoned, radioactive ghost town we saw in a movie or video game and it was that intrigue that initially gripped me. I wanted to know what lay beneath the surface; the stories, the lives that were impacted. So I started digging and the more I dug the more I was moved by what really happened there, and all that passion just spilled out into song," said Crucifix. "By the time it was said and done with, I knew I could never do the story of 'Chernobyl' any justice until I stood on its ground for myself. That road to Chernobyl changed me forever."
"Chernobyl" is the first single from Crucifix's new album "Acid Reign", which is scheduled for a spring 2013 release on AVJ Records (Bizarre, Nappy Roots). "Acid Reign" is slated to feature guest appearances by Bubba Sparxxx, Nappy Roots, Sean Paul
of Youngloodz and Big Rube of Dungeon Family.
Crucifix has been grinding it out in the hip-hop scene since the release of his controversial double-disc debut, "My Life's Prayer," under the alias BabyBlue. In 2009 his life story was published in the book "Your Own Jesus" by Mark Hall, of the multi-platinum, Grammy, Dove and American Music
Award-winning group, Casting Crowns. In 2010, he released his follow-up sophomore album, "Cruce Signati," as well as teaming up with Southern hip-hop legend, Sean Paul, of Youngbloodz
forming the group Slumdogz. In 2011 his music appeared in VH1's "The T.O. Show" and has been touring the country performing for rabid fans everywhere.
Crucifix is currently featured in both the song and video for Bubba Sparxxx's new single "Splinter," which can be seen online at https://bit.ly/X81cfv. In the video Crucifix portrays a metaphorical "Grim Reaper" who comes to Bubba's aide during his resurrection representing his current musical reemergence. The video has garnered over 200,000 views and been seen on MTV Jams and MTV.com.
