thestand4rd – Simple Needs (Top 14 Albums of 2014)

Back at the beginning of October, thestand4rd set the Twin Cities AND the internet on fire with the release of their video for “Simple Needs”. A surprise drop, the stunning visual compliments the record perfectly; Alex Howard really did a good job directing. This video serves as a major milestone for thestand4rd, not only was it their first; it marked the beginning of their transition from murky, behind the scenes kids, into full fledged stars ready for any stage. If you’ve paid attention to the Twin Cities hip hop scene, you’ve definitely heard all of these names before (save Spooky pre 2013), a testament to just how far they’ve come.
