A couple of months ago, the great New York psychedelic rap producer Harry Fraud released his collab-heavy High Tide EP for free online via Scion AV. The precise and blippy “Loopy” had verses from Harlem deadeye Smoke DZA and French Montana’s secret weapon Chinx Drugz. But neither rapper shows up in the video. Nor does Fraud, for that matter. Instead, the only person onscreen for almost all of the video is one very art-directed dancing girls. Here’s what Fraud says about the FAFU-directed video: “For ’Loopy,’ I didn’t want to do a traditional rap video. I wanted something that was fun, wavy and visually more colorful than anything I had previously been a part of. With ’Loopy,’ I wanted to experiment and make the video that people didn’t expect.” Check it out below.
