Every song starts with an idea in someones head, some take longer than others to come to fruition. ‘Gingerbread Hag’ is one of those songs. Somehow Uncommon Nasa’s brain came up with an idea to make a rap song that was an inverse telling of the fable, Hansel & Gretel, told from the point of view of the old woman in the gingerbread house.
When Nasa’s critically acclaimed record, Written At Night, was being formulated it was finally time for the Gingerbread Hag to reveal herself to the world. Showing her face proudly during the thematic album’s nightmare sequence was highly intentional. There were no better choices to share this exploration of the selfishness and privledge of children than Brzowksi on vocals and C-Money Burns of Vinyl Cape on some chilling guitar licks. There was also no better place to shoot the visual representation of this idea then their wide open space of Portland, Maine. With that, hardened New Yorkers, Uncommon Nasa and director Mike Petrow piled into a car for the 5 hour trip North.
“What you are viewing is the result of an idea formed outside of the box and molded into a piece of art that hopefully sparks some thought and imagination. “- Uncommon Nasa
