ShabZi has finally dropped the anticipated visuals for his joint Views and it is something to behold! Views initially dropped last year in October and since then the rapper has been working hard to stay on top.
As we have mentioned before, Views is about how people, especially rappers portray fake lifestyles just for the sake of views and likes and social media fame. ShabZi Madallion captures this perfectly in the video and shows the mansion and fake cars and the hot girlfriend.
Blass handled the production on Views and ShabZi jumped on this Trap beat and drops hard bars, almost mocking the beat. It could be that his sound is too sophisticated and his lyrics too nice to be on this beat. It is quite refreshing to hear actual content on the joint, as opposed to the sounds that most rappers think trap is about. He does, however, flow nicely on this.
The thing about this video is that much like the song, ShabZi is mocking this pretentious lifestyle and at the same time calling out the rappers who are guilty of this. This is because he doesn’t look like he remotely owns all these things. No shade but this juxtaposition of the beat and the verse to the expensive, almost impersonal possessions is a strong statement about the extent of this in the industry. It’s quite amazing!
ShabZi produced the video, Nicholas Mills handled the direction of the video and Grand Dream shot it. Great job!
