Brooklyn, Vietnam beast Mean Joe Scheme had a few things to get off his chest, and let his intense thoughts fly out in the visuals for this absolute banger, “It Was Written.”

Lyrically and socially inspired by Nas’ debut, Illmatic – there are some striking similarities between the two, despite Nasir reigning from Queensbridge and Joe from King’s County, as well as the age difference. Joe Scheme delicately balances the aura which made the 90s so special with the refinement and aged wisdom of our modern era – something special that is seldom seen or heard these days.

This is shown and proven on his debut album, You Gotta Watch out now via J57‘s FiveSeven Music imprint. You can stream it for free here.
