Walnut, California rapper David May presents the EM3-directed music video for “Store Runs”, the new single from VIDEO 94, his new free EP out now featuring DAMAR, Phantom Thrett and produced by fellow OSA (One Step Ahead) affiliate Gunnah. Born to a drug-addicted mother, David lived in foster homes before being adopted by a couple who had previously lost a daughter to leukemia. In 2010 May locked the opening spot on Wiz Khalifa’s Deal Or No Deal Tour. May reached out to fellow 909 area artist Curtiss King of Black Cloud Music for beats. The two exchanged beats for concert tickets. “That show changed my life,” says David. “I knew right then this is what I wanted in life: music and anything to do with it.” In 2012 Black Cloud released David’s debut album The Lifestyle Of A Dream Chaser and performed alongside Pac Div, Curren$y and joined The Road To Paid Dues Tour with Murs and Fashawn. Now independent, David describes Video 94 as “an homage to the local head shop I frequent. It’s all about the late-night stoner lifestyle I’ve grown accustomed to.”
