Trapland Pat & Eli Fross Take the SRT to NYC in New Video

Published

on

With his inimitable intensity and unflappable flows, Trapland Pat has the goods to go bar-for-bar with the best of them. Today, the Florida native connects with BK’s Eli Fross to swap rhymes in a back-and-forth the likes of which NYC hasn’t seen since the US Open for his new video, “Hellcat.” “Hellcat” is the latest glimpse from Trapnificent, Pat’s upcoming project, due to release in April via Alamo/Bang Biz.

The ShotByJolo-directed video, the making of which was previewed in Pat’s recent “Motions” video, sees the Florida native and the Winners Circle riser pulling up in the titular SRT when two white-clad baddies approach the pair on either side of the vehicle, as Pat and Eli prepare to spit game. Surrounded by their crews, the rappers keep the energy high throughout the track’s three minute runtime, as they exchange bars over the buoyant beat’s booming synth bass line. The pair shares a fresh, undeniable chemistry while each keeps their regional flair intact. Pat can even be seen Woo-Walking alongside Eli, though with a unique Broward County bounce, as he raps, “Cause we too sturdy/36 zips, that’s a birdie/Been in the game, no jersey.”

Raised in a strict Haitian household in Deerfield Beach, FL, Trapland Pat took it upon himself to escape his rough circumstances by any means necessary. When his football dreams came crashing to a halt after his scholarship to Indiana State was revoked, Pat threw himself into rap music. Inspired by his brother’s habit of freestyling, Pat realized he had serious talent, and spent his spare time refining his wordplay and songwriting. He made a name for himself in the south with mixtapes like Exit 41and Pak Man, eventually earning the attention of Fredo Bang, who signed him to his Bang Biz imprint.

2021 was a huge year for the young rapper, heralded by his single Big Business.” Dominated by a simple, but infectious piano riff, “Big Business” showcased the rapper’s rare charisma, generating over 5 million combined streams and earning praise from Passion of the Weiss, who recently placed the song at #18 on its list of Best Rap Songs of 2021. “Big Business” was the centerpiece of the Pitchfork-acclaimed Thru The Dooran accomplished 13-track mixtape with appearances from fellow Floridians Kid Trunks and Kuttem Reese.

As Trapland Pat looks to take his searing street raps to a much larger audience, stay tuned for much more music from the young rapper, and don’t dare doubt his determination to succeed.

Kenzo Balla Keeps His Eyes Dry in “No Sympathy” Video

Published

By

Bursting out of NYC with the explosiveness of an elite edge rusher, Kenzo Balla is applying pressure on his mission to run up a sack. With his borough on his back like a last name on a jersey, Kenzo returns to share the new video for “No Sympathy” from his recent Mr. Ready To Blitz project. Over dizzying production from Spinback and Ron.Adg, Kenzo spits with a game-ready fury on “No Sympathy,” delivering each cautionary flex with a hard-nosed intensity: “Ballin’ on n****s, I ain’t talking scrimmage.”

The video for “No Sympathy,” shot by SozeCinema, positions Kenzo as the captain of his team rallied behind him throughout the video. The Richard Sherman to his own Legion of Boom, Kenzo’s the only one who’s visage is unobscured by hoods and balaclavas, making it clear he’s the face of this pack. With quick cuts and transitions to match the track’s rapid pace, “No Sympathy” plays out less like a music video and more like the hardest-hitting highlight reel of the season. The video for “No Sympathy” arrives as Kenzo prepares for Mr. Ready To Blitz (Deluxe), coming on December 16th.

Mr. Ready to Blitz saw Kenzo leverage his devastating explosiveness across 14 tracks, including recent singles like the high-octane, NPR-approved “Krash Out,” and the Cito Blick and Pdot Savv-assisted “Don’t Panic.” On “Feel The Rage,” Kenzo bursts onto an endearingly melancholic drill instrumental with the headstrong momentum of a mammoth nose tackle like Vince Wilfork, while more fast-paced cuts like the Rayy Balla-featured “Go Kuu” highlight Kenzo’s elusive agility as he flashes through instrumental pockets like Troy Polamalu. Like all the most elite defensive rushers in the game, Kenzo’s strength lies in his opponent’s inability to contain him– in the split second it takes to register his arrival on the track, he puts himself 10 steps ahead.

A rising name in one of the nation’s busiest rap scenes, Kenzo Balla made his mark on the scene with his relentless rhymes and high-energy vocals. Known for collaborating with fellow Bronx heavyweights like his brother TG Crippy, Kenzo kicked off his career with a frenzy of fiery videos, including local hits like “5th To Sev” ft. TG Crippy & Pdot Sav (2 million video views), “OOTAZ,” and the “Love Nwantiti”-remixing Let Me Know” (1.8 million views). This summer, the former AAU baller tore up the streets with Dead Gzz,” a vicious, uptempo missive that racked up over 1.3 million video views since its release in June.

With a blistering EP in the books and the Deluxe on its way, Kenzo Balla emerges from his perch in the Bronx to blitz the rap game. Sit back and watch his rise, because there’s no stopping it.
