Queensbridge, N.Y. bruiser Big Twins heads back to his stomping grounds in the stylish new video for “Rap Star”, another standout joint off his stellar ‘TNT‘ album with Los Angeles producer, Twiz The Beat Pro.
Watching “Rap Star” provides some visual insight into where Twins is coming from, something he points out from the jump when he spits that he’s “born & raised in 41-16” over Twiz’s dark, piano-fueled instrumental. Twins also admits to taking a break from from NYC to get his “mind & his vision right”, which led him to residing in different spots (L.A. most recently) and touring the globe. Of course, this was all part of his journey to reach his goal of becoming a “Rap Star”, which he details in between speaking with the youth and flexing in front of some ill graffiti.
The video was directed by the Hostage Media crew, whose past work includes collaborations with Cormega, Cam’ron, & Rick Ross. And given that their slogan is “It’s not what u shoot, it’s how u edit”, it’s only right that their words come to life here. Otherwise typical scenarios become vibrant & almost psychedelic through the use of shape-shifting edits & effects.
