DC Rappers To Film Music Video In North Korea

(AllHipHop News) Washington, DC natives Anthony “Pacman” Bobb and Dontray “Peso” Ennis say they have never traveled past the metropolitan area of their hometown, but thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign the two unsigned artists will soon be heading to North Korea in order to shoot music videos.

The Guardian reports the duo raised over $10,000 to fund their trip to the communist nation. The journey was arranged by the group’s manager Ramsey Aburdene who connected with Iraq War vet Mike Bassett who helped secure Pacman and Peso’s tickets and visas. Bassett lives in South Korea and works with individuals looking to travel to North Korea.

Pacman and Peso admit that family members tried to talk them out of going to the notoriously secretive authoritative nation, but say they are not afraid to enter a country that has maintain a very tense relationship with the West over its nuclear weapons program and alleged human rights violations.

“I’m a thrill-seeker, I don’t fear nothing,” said Pacman. He added, “I don’t pay too much to politics, so I can’t say what is right. Then again, who is to say what is right and what is wrong?”

His partner’s answer to the question about safety drew a comparison between the overseas trip and the dangers he faces residing in DC.

“You don’t think this is a dangerous place to be living at right now? There’s your answer, then,” stated Peso before later sarcastically remarking, “If we don’t die, it will probably be a big life-changer.”

The crew of Pacman, Peso, Bassett, Aburdene and friends are set to depart to China and then North Korea on Saturday. They plan to film their video on a karaoke party bus in Pyongyang.
