Heiruspecs do expert impression of Barack Obama in new video for "Get Up"



We got an announcement of a CD release show and new self-titled album from Minneapolis hip-hop group Heiruspecs back in September. That show and record won't happen until December, which is still a bit off (although, to be fair, when the hell did October decide it had to come to an end?). But we're starting to see some signs of life from the 'specs.

First off, the group premiered a new song from the upcoming full-length as part of Culture Bully's blog-a-thon for charity. Now, the band has debuted a new video for their song "Get Up". You can watch the Obama-flavored video, which is sure to be the stuff of Michele Bachmann's nightmares, at the top of the post. Listen to their new track at the bottom:

Check out what Sean McPherson of Heiruspecs said about music education here. It's a pretty remarkable story about how one teacher can make a world of difference in the life of a student.

Speaking of Minneapolis rappers and Obama, have you heard M.anifest's new jam?

While you're at it, read his essay too.
