Boston-based rapper Antonio Breez pays homage to one his heroes with the new video for “2PAC,” which finds the rising artist spitting crazy braggadocio over a flip Pac classic, “Hail Mary.”
Over the past several years, Breez has built a strong following with the release wholly original material (like 2017’s great The Migration Narrative) and clever new takes on legendary material like “2PAC.” And to continue building anticipation for the second Migration Narrative, which is due out May 30th, he shares this Kountdown-produced take on “Hail Mary” that was actually played for him by Hip-Hop godfather Erick Sermon.
For the track’s visuals, director Pen Pushas takes us on colorful journey through Breez’s verses, which include slick edits the emcee delivering his rhymes and stunting in front his JEEP. The color changes are particularly arresting, and somehow inject even more life into this already-lively single from the 23-year-old artist whose style—and highly quotable wordplay (that Whitey Bulger line!)—is all his own.
Check out the visuals, and mark your calendars for the May 30th release The Migration Narrative 2, which becomes available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms Gituff Entertainment.
