Video Spotlight: @allstarjr2724 channels Easter colors in “Special”

Published

on

As soon as the video starts, the first thing you notice about AllStar Jr’s appearance is that he’s really bright today. Through some interesting hues of pink, he sparks an interest in his fashion choices. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that particular shade of the color outside of salmon. But it’s cool, and noteworthy of his courageousness to try something different.

The visual itself is shot extremely well in one major location, with an assortment of angles adding some variety to the final product. Whether AllStar is rapping to the camera, counting money, or the beautiful building in the background is receiving camera time, it all looks crisply shot. Director Ko Goloud manages to capture everything with a real eye for detail.

Check out the visual for “Special” below.

Devon The Chief’s latest release “TBH” offers listeners an authentic look at life from his point-of-view

Published

Devon The Chief offers a new perspective on his newest song “TBH.” The track, which features Twenty3Wayz, recounts their personal experiences throughout their life’s journey so far that have shaped their perspective. The subject matter of the song covers a plethora of things such as failed romances, betrayal, paranoia and grieving the loss of loved ones. Calling the emotionally vulnerable single his “realest song to date” in a recent interview, Devon shared the main goal for his message in the song was to simply express how he is “numb to the bullsh*t and still tryna heal.”

During Devon’s verse on “TBH” he raps “It’s just me and Twenty3[Wayz] and like twenty-three bitches” and the first half of this line is emphasized in the song’s visual as the two emcees are the only characters audiences are shown throughout the video’s entirety. As they each recite their reflective verses, viewers are taken between scenes of them chilling in their backyard playing dominoes, Devon sitting in contemplation in front of a Catholic Church and both artists flexing their riches by their cars in the middle of the desert. There are also scenes of them being posted up in the hallways of their crib under different hues of blue and green lights that seem to go hand-in-hand with the overall vibes of the song. 

“TBH” is the follow up track coming after Devon’s last release “Myself, Pt. 2.” He has much more in the works such as another collaboration with Lil Bean and plans to put out an entire tape this September. Be sure to follow him @devonthechief for more updates.
