Independent rapper Retro Champ debuted the video for his latest single this week.

Retro Champ debuted the video for his cover of the Linkin Park song ‘A Place For My Head‘ Thursday.  The video’s premiere comes less than a month after he debuted the video for his then latest single ‘Confidence.’

‘Confidence’ is streaming now through Spotify.  The album is available now through Midwest Originals, LLC.

The video for Retro Champ’s cover of ‘A Place For My Head’ features the rapper in a small setup along with his fellow musicians.  Enlisted to help with the song is Isaac Etter of This is Falling to cover the part of Linkin Park’s late vocalist Chester Bennington.

In talking about the decision to take on ‘A Place For My Head,’ Retro Champ had the following to say.

“With the 20 year anniversary for Linkin Park’s ‘Hybrid Theory’ coming soon I wanted to do something special for it. I grew up listening to Linkin Park. They really inspired me when I was coming up. Making the track was a team effort. The track was produced by J.T. Ibanez and Isaac Etter. Isaac Etter not only sings on the track, he programmed and recorded all the instruments for it. The final touches came from veteran producer, James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Paramore, Hands Like Houses). James really brought the track to life with an amazing mix. The video was filmed with director, J.T. Ibanez (P.O.D., Slaves, Picturesque.)”

Retro Champ’s cover of ‘A Place For My Head’ is available to stream and download here.

Retro Champ Debuts ‘Confidence’ Video

Independent rapper Retro Champ debuted the video for his latest single this week.

Retro Champ debuted the video for his new single ‘Confidence‘ Thursday.  The song is the latest single from his new EP F.Y.I., which was released last month through Midwest Originals, LLC.  The EP is streaming through Spotify.

The video features the rapper against a variety of backdrops, dropping his rhymes, showing his talent on the flute, lifting weights and more as he performs his new single.

The use of his own flute performance couples with the beats and electronics to make the song’s arrangement a presentation that rap and hip-hop purists will appreciate.  The mood set through the arrangement works well with the song’s lyrical theme, which according to Retro Champ, is meant to encourage others to love and appreciate themselves.

“Confidence is about me finally being confident with myself again,” he said. “I struggled a lot with my confidence growing up, this song shows that I have grown and that I’m happy with who I am. I also want other people to love themselves for who they are and have the confidence in themselves to be them.”

‘Confidence’ is streaming by itself through Spotify.
