The Lagos-based duo of Mista Books & Teck-Zilla delivers a slick new video for Try Angles, the wordplay-filled and soulful burner off their recently released joint EP, The Harder The Better.
There’s so much to immediately love about this track and its visuals, but it all starts with the music. Teck’s incredibly fresh and head-nodding instrumental as his canvas. Books talks his sh*t with clever bravado that extends from the verses all the way through the hook; “That’s why I try angles/ So many squares in my circle/ Always stay patient ‘cause that’s a virtue/ See beyond the earth, that’s universal/ They want me goin’ back, back on reversal.”
That sentiment is the driving force behind the video, which is directed by frequent collaborator Psalmurai. His vision pays homage to classic hip-hop visuals (peep the EPMD Easter egg), but there’s a distinctly modern and organic feel. Guest appearances include afrosoul singer, Maka, and producer, Ben Hilly.
