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.”
Originally premiering on Ruby Hornet, “Ode To Joy…” was recorded live during the “Kind Of Buzzed Vol 2.” session at Cafe Mustache. Chandler London freestyles over an improvised, multilayered beat- provided by Netherfriends. Get the track below, mastered for your listening pleasure. Bonus: Video from the session, shot by Geoff Henao.
