There’s something strangely beautiful about Nodis and Braddock Road’s video for “OFFDRUGS.” We’ve broken it down into four reasons that you should check it out. Be prepared to be blown away.
If you like weird shit, this is for you
There’s a big guy in a cowboy hat and a miniature version of Nodis rapping. If that’s not trippy to you, I don’t know what is. One thing’s for certain though – Nodis has some moxie to create something like this.
The cinematic flair is out of this world
Even though it’s a little creepy, there’s no way to get around how incredibly shot it is. The director imbues the proceedings with the cinematic skill you’d associate with Hollywood film. Quick cuts and amazing energy make it a video that you wouldn’t want to miss.
Nodis’ raps match the video’s eclectic nature
When Nodis starts rapping, the energy in his voice is unparalleled. Consider us fans of tenacious energy. His rhymes about love in the face of narcotics carry the kind of heft that attracts listeners.
Fly Boi Rich’s new tune “New Jack City” is immensely powerful
Fly Boi Rich is one of Detroit’s hidden gems. This rapping mafioso’s punchlines hit hard, his beats even harder. His latest release is “New Jack City,” a tough, street anthem that will make even the most weary become fans. Check it out below.
.@drewisfamous and @playknows hit the school track in “Look At That!”
Drew Famous dropped the aesthetically bizarre 800DASH last year, and now he’s releasing the video for “Look At That!,” a crisply shot trip heavy on the nostalgia. It’s almost like one of those weird training videos from the 1990s that makes brilliant use of washed out color palettes and cool camera angles. It features PLAY of Virginia group Breezepark who brings tenacious energy to the chill tune.

@RealRobotJones and @LadiEarth have the time of their lives in “Big Ol Booty”
Robot’s tenacious new track “Big Ol Booty” will undoubtedly be the soundtrack to a lively time once the weather warms up. The Texas-based rapper knows how to have a good time, judging by past hits like “Camera” and “Sleigh,” and brings that same approach to this tune, reveling in his unique energy to breathe fresh air into the instrumental. Ladi Earth, whose music has just been featured on Netflix’s Russian Doll (her song “Water“), appears her and brings some sex appeal to the proceedings.
