Video: The Darkness
Directed by James Sims
The color blue is rare in nature. Cerulean is a variation of blue, like the sky. The idea is to make a hip-hop project that is just as uncommon, a sound that is set apart–touched by God perhaps–something that is particular and beautiful, like the mood of jazz. Cerulean is that rare shade of the spectrum. Stream the EP on Spotify.
A.Sims, a poet, emcee, writer, and filmmaker from Los Angeles by way of Indiana, started hitting poetry open mic nights with his hip-hop spoken word crew Commoners and Kings in 2004. Working on film sets by day and doing poetry at night he rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest heavyweights in entertainment. Now solo his goal is to usher smart lyrics, classic hip-hop, jazzy loops, and chill vibes into the mainstream music world.
