Cash Kidd’s visual for “Pray” opens up with two hands joined together in unison, aimed towards the sky in an act of desperation. This act is repeated multiple times as the proceedings get underway; we’re introduced to Cash Kidd and associates as they traverse Detroit at night in the blistering cold. Yet as somber and mysterious as the visual lets on to be, the frenzied-tempo of the song along with Cash Kidd’s slightly off-kilter lyrics make it one hell of an interesting experience to partake in. It’s only been out for a few days, but, combining the soulful feel of the production, the somber visual, and the chaotic rap delivery will lead to this becoming one of the year’s first true smashes for the city of Detroit.
Watch the video for “Pray” below.
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.
Check out the visual below.
@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.
