Brian Ennals knows what he’s doing. While many would think it’s absurd that this DMV resident took damn near a half-year to release the video for his 2012 Finale entry “Newport Music,” I’ve been waiting to see this since September and believe the timing was perfect.
In an era when rappers overdose on weekly releases and easily burn out their fan-base, seasoned ears would much rather hear quality over quantity and this high-class track was good enough to earn enough spins to make me forget it’s only even one of three I’ve heard from this mysterious MC. So, naturally, an accompanying video wasn’t even expected and this was basically a welcomed instance of putting a face to a name. A good one at that, because this visual fits the track’s high-rise mood perfectly and Ennal’s goddess really is a temple. Lord have mercy.
Still, B, you aren’t to make us wait this long for your Candy Cigarettes project, right? Right?
