The first video to surface from his "so-close-you-can-almost-taste-it", new album The Colossus finds producer/singer/musician RJD2 siding with the plight of the minotaur...seriously. Apparently, it's no easy life. In this Thom Glunt directed video, our brave gallant does his best to navigate the cruel, modern world...but alas, a cool place to call his own is apparently not to be. There's a reason he calls this slick shtick of laid back beats and swirling strings "Let There Be Horns". In the end, our man the minotaur just can't hold 'em back. - David Pitz






The Colossus will be released January 19th on RJ's Electrical Connections Label. He also has a killer slate of live shows ahead of him as well. As always, we got the dates.
