NEW AUS VIDS: SKENZO, LARISSA LAMBERT, NO LABEL NECESSARY
There’s only one spot you need to be locked to on Youtube for the latest clips coming out the AU and that’s our New Hip-Hop Videos From Aus playlist. Updated every day, here’s a wrap up of our latest half dozen favs from across the country. Be sure to comment your thoughts on socials, and let us know which clips need to feature next week!
NO LABEL NECESSARY – LETTER TO MY EX
(NLN Media – Kyle Watson)
Infectious Spanish guitars, latin drums and catchy vocal melodies make ‘Letter To My Ex’ an instant vibe, however one peak at the visuals from this proudly independent team make it one of the best offerings of 2021 so far. The tongue-in-cheek puppetry is a must see and will bring nostalgic vibes for any old school Crank Yankers fans.
GEORGE MYER – DON’T BE SELFISH
(OneHouse Story Company)
For some unknown reason, the entire Aus music industry is sleeping on George Myer. After ‘Don’t Be Selfish’ however, it won’t be long before they’re all on board. In a super tight contribution to the local R&B scene, the 19 year old Melbourne talent delivers bouncy melodies, toe-tapping production and A grade visuals on his latest romancy cut. Big replay value here.
JORDAN RODRIGUES – MY THANG
Jordan Rodrigues has a voice. Make no mistake about that. And he could be one of the acts to watch in 2021. ‘My Thang’ offers up luscious autotune runs and intimate shots of his gorgeous thang / lady / co-star. At less than 2 minutes long, this freestyle / snippet gives off Eli Sostre vibes and will have you hungry for more.
BK LAWD – TOASTING UP
BK Lawd is a notorious name in Melbourne’s South-East, a South-Sudanese talent who helped paved the way for many of the new acts emerging now. Whether it’s trap or drill BK brings a heavy cadence, clever rhyme schemes and an unquestionable presence. Featuring dark, moody flashing lights, ‘Toasting Up’ may be his best moment yet.
SKENZO – DANGEROUS
SW Sydney driller Skenzo is one of the most promising rappers coming out of the 2k. And while he slides smoothly over a banging AKWA beat on ‘Dangerous’, it’s the impressive visuals – laced with an underlying cinematic narrative including elements of BDSM and kidnapping – which make this production a level above your standard street drill clip.
LARISSA LAMBERT – WEAK (SWV Cover)
This one has been doing the rounds for a minute but we had to draw your attention to it if you’ve somehow missed out! Racking up over 15 million views, Larissa Lambert‘s bedroom cover of SWV classic ‘Weak’ has catapulted here into the global vial charts and once you hear her vocal range, there’s little wonder why. We have another R&B superstar on our hands Australia.
