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.
Today, Respect Mag had the privilege of premiering the official video clip for the second single off his f*ck the hype EP, “gusto.”
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.
