W00t! I opened my inbox today only to receive something great. What did I receive you ask? I got a copy of the new video from Tyke T, “Stop Us Now/Reruns”. This here is summer anthem music yall! These are just two of many blazing singles off the Memphis, TN artist’s new mixtape, #DrivenByMusic Vol 1. This is definitely a jawn to keep on repeat. Here’s my official $.02…
The Good: I’m an Old School kid and Tyke T’s visuals will quickly take you back to ’88. Kangol…Check. Simulated rope chain…Check. Posse in the background…Check. All that is missing is a boom box and Breakers doing their thing. Tyke’s Southern twang combined with his mid-pitched growl and heart pounding beats immediately grabs your attention and the catchy hook (provided by the talented Coko) will give you arthritis from constantly hitting rewind. Director Jacob Alan is spot on; he recreates those nostalgic moments of 1988 then cleanly segues to the great present day flavor of the artist. Together, they created a dope video that will keep you tuned in.
The Bad: Bad? What bad? I enjoyed this video from beginning to end and you will too!
Overall: This video is worthy of heavy rotation, straight up. It’s well put together and the music will definitely be played at loud volume from cars passing by while you’re sitting on the porch, stoop, or corner. My advice to Tyke T: Keep doing what you’re doing fam. You’ve got what it takes to compete with these mainstream artists! And that my friend is my official $.02. What’s yours?
