Being along for Molly Brazy’s rise has been like being on a roller coaster; we’ve seen her at her lowest, and now she’s living fast, rapidly rushing towards stardom. On “Last Minute,” it may not be a reflective track, but we’re reminded of her humble beginnings as she goes over the details of her life now. She references classic sitcoms and her Porsche in almost the same line. This dramatic extreme is one of many, and she handles it deftly. Her skill now places her on the top tier of women in rap, and she keeps pushing. There’s something magnetic about her aesthetic, and this video reaffirms it. She looks badass amidst rapidly changing camera angles and sitting on the hood of an expensive ride. And through it all, she still maintains a hint of innocence that renders her adorable even when she’s mimicking holding a giant gun.
Check out Molly Brazy’s visual for “Last Minute” below.
@AkhilSesh’s visual for “Lil Thouwow” will throw you for a loop
Akhil Sesh’s latest visual is “Lil Thouwow” and if there’s one word to describe it, it’s definitely “wow.” That’s a good one by the way, often because the word gets misconstrued in this context. In the visual for the song smoother than usual song, Akhil Sesh loads on copious amounts of special effects that showcase a drive to be eclectic. It works, too.
