The Oakland Trio Drops "Powers" Visual, Set To Re-release Debut Wildfire Project on CD and Vinyl With Bonus Track
Down 2 Earth's presence is dark and commanding. Azure and Clyde Shankle give viewers intense glares into the camera that really cultivate that 'don't f*ck with me" vibe for this video. Davyvid Michael's voice on the hook fits seamlessly into the whole mechanism.

"Powers" is from Down 2 Earth's debut mixtape, Wildfire, which debuted in February via Complex, who called it "a banger of a project."
Down 2 Earth's distinct sound is unlike many of their Bay Area peers. It's edgy and the battle rap influence is very evident.
Down 2 Earth is a new trio hailing from Oakland, California, consisting of HBK Gang artist/producer Azure and CaliMade collective members Clyde Shankle and Dayvid Michael.
Crew member Azure, who just got off a 35-city tour handling DJ duties for Iamsu!, is also prepping for the release of his debut solo project, Leap Year, slated to release this summer.
Down 2 Earth will be re-releasing Wildfire on CD and vinyl with several bonus tracks, including "Powers." Physical issues of the project will be available at D2E3D.com.
