Local Rapper Diffuses a Bomb?

I'm sure you've all seen the movie The Hurt Locker. If not, what you're about to see may not make much sense. I'm also sure most of you have seen the promo videos I've put together for Ripynt over the last six months promoting his two Ep's "On Second Thought" Vol 1 and 2. If not, you can watch them here and here. This is Ripynt's third EP release which raps wraps up his 3 EP plan for 2011. All really solid projects and all FREE! You can download them here. It's always a pleasure working with this dude because he's super open to my creative direction. He juiced up the dialogue while I focused on making this as Hollywood as possible and I think this is my favorite of the three.
