Celebrating lyricism: 3 hip-hop videos you’ve got to watch

Jahan Nostra – “El Chapo” feat. Ceschi

“El Chapo” is a collaborative effort from emcees Jahan Nostra and Ceschi. The record, which was produced by Maulskull, tackles the current immigration issues in the Unites States of America and other ills affecting the minority communities. This song feels like a hard-hitting, social commentary by the two artists, who make use of their uptight lyricism to articulate their thoughts on such emotive issues. Further, the classic hip-hop beat beautifully complements the awesome delivery.

Jusbadd – “Ride Slow”

With “Ride Slow”, rapper/producer Justbadd (whose birth name is Charles “JusBadd” Givens III) gives us a groovy and soulful piece which is interestingly nostalgic and retains a feel-good flavour. The song makes use of storytelling to engage the listener as the artist showcases his smooth and lyrical delivery.

JusBadd is 23 years old and hails from Birmingham, Alabama native is 23 years old now.

Yungeen Ace – “So Long”

Jacksonville-based rapper and singer Yungeen Ace reveals the video for his new single, “So Long”. The clip was filmed by Christian Breslauer, who helps paint a picture which is consistent with Yungeen’s deep and emotive lyrics. Musically, the record is covered in a hip-hop track and it’s laced with melodic layers of blues and gospel tunes. “So Long” reveals the pain that the artist has has to go through – for example, he survived a shooting that left his brother and two friends killed. Listening on, you will feel all these emotions and how they contrast with Ace’s determination to keep moving on.
