Audio Push Takes It Back to the Essence in ‘Check the Vibe’ Video
Audio Push is bringing listeners that classic hiphop vibe. Oktane and Price’s latest single “Check the Vibe” is heavily inspired by A Tribe Called Quest’s “Check the Rhyme.” With that in mind, it makes sense to bring a retro flair to the song’s music video.
Oktane and Price show off their love for a bygone era with plenty of breakdancing and hanging out in a record store during this video. Two kids act as surrogates for Audio Push’s younger selves so the duo can visualize how they grew attached to hip-hop during childhood.
Audio Push may be young, but they have seen quite a lot in their careers. The California natives got dismissed by some as another one-hit wonder when their 2009 single “Teach Me How to Jerk” came and went. But the two linked up with Hit-Boy to prove they were much more than a novelty act. These days, Audio Push are more confident in themselves.
“We just know what we wanna say,” Price recently told XXL. “We know what our message is. We feel like we know who our fans are. We have a foundation of fans and we’ve just grown, so now we’re finally at a place where we can stand on something. We know a lot of artists that put their debut album out and they hate ‘em. Can’t stand ‘em.”
