Neka & Kahlo
Portland Vibe/Hip Hop duo Neka and Kahlo is coming at us with a hot vid for their song “Mayweather.” The song is sizzling, and director Totem Ent kept and held my attention with the lush scenery throughout the video. Both the song and the imagery catches your interest, and there is nothing boring about it, even though the video doesn’t contain any action-packed scenes.
Let’s get to the song first– it’s a slower tempo song, and both Neka and Kahlo shine. Neka has a very smooth and pleasant tone which works well with the smooth R&B tinged Hip Hop beat. Rapper Kahlo has a good flow to her rhymes, and her skills meld together quite nicely with Neka’s singing. Now, the actual images in the vid– throughout the whole thing, we see Neka and Kahlo singing and rapping amongst the trees and mountains of a wooded area, which gives the video a mellow vibe. The scenery is pretty and serene, especially towards the end when the setting sun gives everything a nice yellowish-orange glow. All the elements just come together perfectly– Neka’s pretty singing voice, Kahlo’s blazing rhymes, and the verdant scenery of the wooded area highlighted with the radiant colors of the setting sun.
I really enjoyed this video, and I think that this duo is mad talented. I look forward to seeing and hearing more from Neka and Kahlo– do you agree?
