Watch Kriminals’s “Open Your Mind Before Your Mouth” above.
Right after we finished our recording I knew that this song, ‘Open Your Mind Before Your Mouth’ would be our single release. The song is about all the hate we’ve experienced from people hearing our first album. We only thought it was right choose the song that would show them that words from a hater ain’t ever gunna stop us. The music video represents us in the sense that we are heavy music yet we are hip hop. We don’t shun any type of music or style or fashion choice and growing up in Cali we were bound to have a hip hop influence ’cause that’s what surrounds us and it shows how the parties are out here in the west, a mix of everything… – Miklo
