Video shot and edited by Netherfriends
A classic tale of relationships long dead, “Never Walk Out On You” has been a blog and fan-favorite from Netherfriends (with the original Impolite Society lineup of Elee and Wes) ever since the track premiered on Ruby Hornet in August of last year– and re-surfaced to be included on Netherfriends’ first full-length Hip Hop release, New CHI-t, back in July.
The ImSo clique has since expanded, as has the number of available Netherfriends projects, but the three artists took a minute to have some fun and shoot this video, almost a year to-the-day of the song’s original release. The video was shot here at the Kimball House, it features a lo-fi aesthetic, a plastic leg, a cameo from fellow Impolite member Khalfani, and Blakkass Westley making some of the creepiest facial expressions in a rap video since Redman’s “Time 4 Sum Aksion.”

Music: Fess Grandiose, “Nutz…” from Life In Lo-Fi…Vol. 1
