Fresh off the release of his new EP, Pepper Spray, A-Plus is happy to release the second video from the project, this one for the song "Road Trippin." Pepper Spray is A-Plus' collaborative project with his brother, AAGEE, who along with A-Plus make up the EP's primary production team, Compound 7, and is a tribute album to the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The new EP is currently available as a free download on A-Plus' website, compliments of Compound 7.
"Road Trippin'" pays homage to touring, a subject matter found in many Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, and a topic that hits home plenty with A-Plus, who tours solo and with his Souls Of Mischief 100's of dates a year. "Memories and experiences of being on the road are a recurring theme with Red Hot Chili Peppers' music, as well as on Pepper Spray," says A-Plus. "'Road Trippin'' is a song about leaving to go on the road, and what it entails. It's a very hard, but amazing, job." The video is reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' video for "Scar Tissue," but unlike that video, A-Plus' was on an actual road trip throughout the filming, with director Austin Steele in the passenger seat, as A-Plus made his way from Oakland to Los Angeles.
