Cambridge, MA’s own N.B.S. (Natural Born Spitters) provide a stark look at the harsh realities of street life in their new video for “The Evils,” which is produced by acclaimed Swiss producer DJ Tray (Joell Ortiz, Saigon, Tragedy Khadafi), and serves as the debut single off their SwissVets2 LP, which is set to drop early ’18.
The JakeBeatz Films production is guided by the raw rhymes of Nux and Flash, two emcees who take pride in their ability to blend personal and political topics in their verses. While you can hear those qualities throughout their discography, they’re particularly evident on “The Evils.” That goes for its video, as well, because it displays both the rappers’ passion for their craft.
In addition to seeing the two recording in the booth, there’s flashes of footage that serves to follow the narratives within Nux and Flash’s rhymes. This includes the “money and guns, drugs and women”—aka “The Evils”—and the sad story of one young man whose life fell apart at the hands of the track’s namesake.
Check out the visuals, and if you’d like to support, head over to the digital outlet of your choice to support the single, which is now available via Empire Music / PW Records / Big Bang Records. Keep your eyes and ears open for more leaks and visuals taken from SwissVets2!
