Balt Getty debuts on SpitFireHipHop with his new “80s Crack Baby” animated video.
Balt Getty presents the animated music video for his “80s Crack Baby” mixtape, produced entirely by Balt and featuring shoutouts from DJ Premier, Scott Storch and Kanye West. The artist, DJ, producer, award-winning actor, director and Purplehaus founder born Balthazar Getty is the son of German artist Gisela Getty and John Paul Getty III. Balthazar entered the mainstream via his role in 1990’s Lord Of The Flies, going on to star in David Lynch classics like Lost Highway and the 2017 resurrection of Twin Peaks.
Countless DJ gigs around the globe and a string of Purplehaus releases featuring everyone from rap legends Wu-Tang Clan to Latin superstar Asdru Sierra set the stage for the 2018 introduction of his animated alter ego Balt Getty, which first appeared on single “Porsche” followed by “Retail Therapy,” which attracted Riff Raff for its official remix.
Balt’s silver-haired, gold-grilled, face-tattooed animated avatar takes center stage in the “Crack Baby” video, which comes on the heels of Balt’s self-directed music video for “Ugly” and “Sad Boy.” “We set out to create the first ever animated mixtape,” Balt says about his new project. “The theme is a nod to growing up in The Bay during that era.”
