Ever since Detroit up-and-coming emcee Nolan the Ninja made his presence a known factor at the DopeHouse, the Motor City lyricist has made quite the impression – all while utilizing a grassroots, DIY attitude. And with fellow Rock City artists like Phat Kat and the hard hustling DJ Soko supporting him, it’s truly only a matter of time before the rest of the scene and world plays catch up.
The slighty-muted color palette for Nolan’s latest visual breathes a certain, familiar griminess that is reminiscent of lo-fi, low budget music videos from the early 90s which is actually a nostalgic nod for those who grew up during the era of Rap City, The Box & Yo! MTV Raps. Watch the madness unfold as Nolan goes for the “gusto” up top.
