Netherfriends – “Never Walk Out On You” feat. Elee X & Blakkass Westley


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.”

Not everyone has read Frank Love’s How to Gracefully Exit a Relationship, and let’s face it- in most cases we aren’t given the chance to exit gracefully, regardless of the situation.

But don’t fret; it doesn’t seem like a graceful exit is what Elee X (Impolite Society) is looking for here.   Describing the track as “A pretty petty song about a bad time…,” the ImSo MC collaborated with Houston producer BPMD to get a few things off his chest.

Blakkass Westley and Elee X unearthed this nugget from the Impolite Society vault, remixed by Nunca Duerma. With no shortage of “sentiment” for past relationships, “Look of Hate” is a cut ImSo has performed live since back when Elee and Wes were the group’s sole members.

Upon releasing the track, Elee had this to say about its subject matter: “Initially, I didn’t want to drop this joint because of the mixed feedback we’ve recieved post-performances, people either really fuck with it, or it scares the shit out of them, but ultimately I realized, that’s exactly what I wanted to do!”
