Clavius Crates - Classically Trained ft. Silas Green

This is it, y'all! After several years, many shows, and a few name changes, my first solo single and video are dropping on the internet. Having been obsessed with music since my first memories, I dedicate this tune to the record stores that fostered my enthusiasm and provided me with an education.

I am joined by my Tree City compatriot, Silas Green (AKA General Population), on rhyme phonics... and the almighty DJ Cataclysmic lends a hand with his intergalactic scratches.

The video was directed, shot, hand-processed, and edited by my old friend P.S. Dean, on B&W Super 8 film. Dig it.

-Clavius Crates

NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, the video release has been delayed. Stay tuned, however! We're working hard to get it up and running soon.

Introducing... Clavius Crates.

Ladies and gentlemen... introducing Clavius Crates.

Formerly known as Realeyez but still very much a part of Michigan hip hop super group Tree City, Clavius is known by most for spewing venomous vocals at will. However, his talents don't stop at the microphone. An avid guitarist and keen-eared producer, Clavius has been hard at work producing killer beat after killer beat.

Check out some of his work at!

Tree City EXCLUSIVE, feat. on "Midwest Broadcast Presents Flyover Land, Vol. 1"

It's been a long time coming, but Flyover Land, Vol. 1 is finally available for free download. I won't weigh this post download with excessive anecdotes or sentimental thank yous — I can save those for later. However, I will say that I think this is a legitimately outstanding project, and I'm confident that you will enjoy the music onFlyover Land, Vol. 1 as much as I do. Some of the most talented emcees and producers from the Midwest have contributed songs for this mixtape, most of which are entirely exclusive to this project and have not been heard before until today.

Furthermore, if you take any message from this release, I hope that you realize that Midwest Broadcast is for the people. Excluding the intro track, this mixtape features no shout outs for this site. I hate it as much as anyone when a mixtape's flow and rhythm is absolutely ruined by overbearing DJ drops — I did not want that for
Flyover Land, Vol. 1. Just sixteen consecutive tracks of uninterrupted, high-quality hip-hop. I appreciate every reader of Midwest Broadcast, whether you check the site daily or stumble upon it irregularly. Readers visiting this site and showing love is what keeps me working on this blog, and I don't take it for granted. Thank you.

Finally, I want to close on a couple of notes. First, I want to give one huge shout out to Jonah Miller at
High Top Productions. Jonah did the artwork for Flyover Land, Vol. 1 (as well as the website's banner design) and was extremely cooperative and patient with me in the creation of the album's covers. Secondly, I want to remind you that Midwest Broadcast will be coming back with Flyover Land, Vol. 2 in a matter of months. The artist feedback for this project was so great that I had to expand the series to multiple volumes. I already have several tracks collected and big plans for the next volume, and I encourage you to keep checking back at Midwest Broadcast for the next release in the Flyover Land series (as well as all other daily updates!). Without further adieu, I present to you Flyover Land, Vol. 1. Enjoy. Share it with friends. Peace!
