New 90s inspired video for 'What Eva' ft. Mr. J. Medeiros out via Nowadays Records

Rising French electronic collective and label owners, La Fine Equipe, are pleased to announce details of a brand new visual for 'What Eva' ft. Mr. J. Medeiros released through Nowadays Records on December 12th.

Mr. J. Medeiros is an American rapper, record producer, and songwriter. As well as releasing music under the name, Mr. J. Medeiros, he is responsible for forming the Hip Hop group The Procussions, is one half of the Hip Hop/Electronic duo AllttA created with 20Syl (C2C, Hocus Pocus), and the lead singer of Punk-Rap group thebandknives.
On this track he gives us an effortless demonstration of a sharpened flow which is getting better and better through the years:
" Writing “What Eva” took me back to the boom-bap age of Hip Hop and gave me a chance to do some “braggadocio” raps while infusing it with my more current style through out, a mix of nostalgia and lyricism."

The director detail the video:
"We wanted it to look like a 90s VHS that was put on the VCR. Part of the charm was its fuzzy, imperfect look so apparent during that era. 'What Eva' embodies a strong DIY ethos and we the band, did most of the filming ourselves using a small handheld camcorder. Everything was filmed on location in the supermarket. There are no 3D models.
The song and visual is also a homage to the strong visual elements often found in 90s music videos like Mc Solaar's 'New Western' and French hiphop outfit IAM's 'Je danse le Mia'. There is a surreal sequence in the video where we are surrounded by a kaleidoscopic display of supermarket products.
To summarize, we had a complete blast filming this".

Now how the fuck you never heard of me
Worry me nah my current is raw plus fuck you currently are
My currency strong dumb luck occurred to me nah
Its just the birds and the bees y'all a burden to me
Burning to please got burns on your knees awe
No love bet you learning to tease awe
No pub got ya earning no fees awe
I'd give a hug to y'all but all of y'all is furries with flees
Feel the fury 100 plus that's my current degree
Free a flurry out the snub and watch it scurry your team
See'em hurry out the club now if you heard what I mean
I be the jury and the judge I make a murder look clean with
Nuff shots for the burner to cease
You gurgling these words that leave you bleeding in a permanent freeze
I turn up like a curb to the teeth
Smile mother fucker gonna hurt to say cheese

I take a pull from the blunt like pah What Eva
I take a pull from the blunt like pah pah
I take a pull from the blunt like pah What Eva
I take a pull from the blunt like pah pah

I am afraid of no rapper man
I ain't ashamed of my road or the chapters man
I have been trained in all flows and I've mastered them
All for the sake of a name you can't trash talk man
'98 is where my past start made it out the asphalt
Dated on my passport I aint ever asked for a name to vouch my last work
Stated in my craft work if you aint got your own name shame but that’s your ass fault
I aint ever been a humble man so keep the prayer hands
I’m forever sinned and born again now that’s a fair stance
I have got forgive us on my skin now thats a shared glance
But I can’t watch my back or wash my back aint that a pair of pants
Damn one leg at a time shit is cumbersome
And I won’t be the sullen one who’s waiting on the summer sun
Nah I’m a be the sum of one who came to take what’s come to him
And say to those who’ve come to shun
Mother fucker better run

I take a pull from the blunt like pah What Eva
I take a pull from the blunt like pah pah
I take a pull from the blunt like pah What Eva
I take a pull from the blunt like pah pah
