high note video

One of the best tracks off the legend’s album is now in NSFW music video form (RIP BET Uncut). White Van Music, the album that dropped this year from “High Note” producer Jake One, was a solid album that I was feeling altho I never really got obsessed w/ it — but this track was strong enough to make me want to give a new listen to the entire thing. Take a played out conceit like “sex moans over sex song” and tie it to a played out concept like “sampling classic soul” and somehow u have a … classic track? I don’t know it reminds me of my most-listened to album right now which is Juvenile’s uptown nolia boy mixtape (more on this later). Many of the tracks are conceptually clever, not just generically ‘banging’ but actually unique in some regard. It’s easy to get caught up in alliances towards/against different cliches and stylistic choices in rap music i.e. ‘man do i hate that autotune!’ but for the most part that stuff all falls away because there are so many exceptions to the rule when someone takes a particularly nimble approach. This is a track that really differentiates itself by being great — transcending the stylistic cliches but not rejecting them.

That said, did not need shirtless Scarface winking @ the camera while ostensibly boning.

  1. The track is mos def a thowed combo with FaceMob and Jake One. But i agree, really no need to see the big homie actin out making her hit the high note. Thats why he’s a dope story teller and not famous for porn vids. Face the triple O.G. of the south still holdin it down
