The Gangsta Shaman of Brick City, Piff James returns with a new video for “Half Of Ounce A Day.” With visuals (Directed by Afotey Annum) and a somber guitar and hard drums instrumental (Produced by the artist himself), this is a first-hand view of block life. As James says it “well, it’s really what was going on outside when I wrote it. It’s the thoughts and experiences that were happening in-between blazing half of ounce while I was working on the joint.”
Perhaps his most socially-minded track in the recent past, we see the emcee/producer navigate his day while spitting reality bars such as “Blazing half a pound a month, that’s like half of ounce a day, glocks and tres you can hear it from a block away, I talk to God and pray, hope my time will be not today, from a city where all the pretty women got aids and gang members in my hood bang harder than beats by Dr. Dre.”
This loosie (available now via DSP’s) closely follows Piff James last drop for “Gangsta Shaman” (released via Gold Chain Music). Video link below

A decorated mic-veteran, many fans know Piff James as a member of the legendary Outsidaz (alongside Pace Won, Young Zee and Rah Digga) as well as an early star of the direct-to-video battle-rap scene from the early days of the millennium.
This loosie is an appetizer for the forthcoming joint project with the Los Angeles Production duo, DirtyDiggs.
