Many children are obsessed with video game franchise Angry Birds, but Sidney Max, son of Black Sheep's Andres "Dres" Titus, took his infatuation to a whole new level. After falling in love with the franchise, Max began creating rhymes about the game and showcasing them to his father in his spare time. Dres filmed a video of his son performing an Angry Birds tribute, which garnered Max a social media following. Dres then called up his buddy DJ Premier to discuss the possibility of him producing the track. Premier said yes. The trio then teamed up with a contact at Rovio, the mastermind behind the famous game, and Angry Birds signed on to go hip-hop.
On July 1, Angry Birds took over the streets of New York to film a music video for Max's track "Here Come The Birds." "It's a really cool track," says producer DJ Premier of the track that made him want to work with Max. "He has the cutest little voice. It's pre-puberty!" The video features Angry Birds graffiti, green screen animations, as well as DJ Premier, Max, and his Dres. "Sidney even gets to pull out a bow and arrow and yell 'the birds are coming' and shoot the pigs and things," explains Premier. "It really was a fun shoot!"
