Canada’s young talent is garnering major notice
Josh Clarke from up north connect with OVO affiliate TVGucci on a remix of “Labeled A Boss,” which embodies the two confidently rapping their rising stardom over a dramatic beat. Sonically meshing Clarke’s melodic hymnals with TVGucci’s grittier hard-hitting lyrics make for a superior hip hop song that not only showcases originality but ingenuity.
Their chemistry together is like The Phoenix Sun’s All-Star backcourt of Chris Paul and Devin Booker taking turns hitting game-winning shots during this year’s playoffs. The video parodies Will Smith’s hit film iRobot along with the themes of Batman.
Sci-Fi themed throughout then visual with effect-laden scenes has the ability to glue to have viewers’ eyes to their television or smartphone screens. It’s a perfect combination of video quality and treatment, which I want to see more of from artists in general.
Having a big budget doesn’t always bode well for a fantastic video, but Josh and TVGucci can hopefully show more artists what a dope concept can do for your art. To view the visual, you can find it on YouTube.
