J Billion - Number 8 Music Video from Jordan Anonuevo on Vimeo.
Risky Bizness Productions artist J-Billion is set to premiere his first music video this afternoon for the song “Number 8,” a track off of his debut album, “The Beautiful Loser.” The video was shot and directed by Jordan Anonuevo, a film student at the Academy of Art University. When brainstorming concepts for the video, J-Billion explained the song as being “for true rappers or even the ‘streets’.” This prompted Anonuevo to, in his words, “draw out a ‘battle- performance’ from Billion; giving the viewer the feeling of being in a rap battle.”
The San Francisco, California locations in the video are significant to J-Billion because they are landmarks in his life. The ‘3rd and Hollister block’ was his hangout as a teen; Cut Creations on San Bruno Avenue is a popular barbershop in Hunters Point; and Candlestick Park embodies the true essence of San Francisco sports, the stadium where heroes and champions are made.
“Number 8” is a track produced by Cee-Rock of Risky Bizness Productions, the team of producers behind “The Beautiful Loser” & most of J-Billion’s music.
Like I stated before I will support Hometown music only if its good. And J-Billion is growing as an artist.
