New Jersey emcee William Cooper dropped a sick animated music video/single called “Secrets Of Oz”. The video and song explore the rumored deeper, political meaning of the classic film. William points out what all the main characters in the movie represent and re tells the story of Dorothy in a really well written, lyrical masterpiece. We love how the animation goes with the rhymes pretty much bar for bar. Salute William Cooper and everyone involved for this one. THIS IS HIPHOP!!
About “Secrets Of Oz”
“The Wizard Of Oz” was released over 75 years ago and remains one of the most iconic motion pictures of all time. Some individuals say this movie had many deeper political meanings hidden in plain sight.
In the 1939 film, Dorothy continues to walk down a yellow (gold) brick road wearing ruby slippers (silver slippers in the original novel) on a mission to reach the Emerald City, which some feel represents greenbacks or even The Federal Reserve, never knowing that she had the power all along. You could argue that Dorothy represents “The People” and how they handed over all of their silver and gold for paper money backed by The Federal Reserve. Today, many question if the gold in The Federal Reserve even exists and others proclaim The Federal Reserve Act to be the greatest heist of all time.
Gemstarr Regime Records lyricist, William Cooper, embarks on his own trip down the yellow brick road delivering “Secrets Of Oz”, a creative interpretation of the original film portraying the birth of The Federal Reserve Act. Producer BP provides the emotional landscape that William Cooper travels while bringing the legendary “Wizard Of Oz” movie back to life in a new light. Director, Alain Alexander Mesa, animates Cooper’s entire monologue perfectly. Every scene occurs in the exact chronological order as the original film and invokes a similar sort of magic of its predecessor.
When speaking to William Cooper about the video he said, “This is by far my favorite song/video I have ever released to this point in my career. This is a very heavy song that may have went over many listener’s heads so I am excited to have such an amazing visual to project the song’s brilliance. I hope my die hard supporters will really enjoy this one.”
