When listening to Nite Jewel’s atmospheric bedroom-pop, most of us would probably not think to ourselves, “This girl should sing rap hooks.” Most of us, then, are not the visionary young rapper/producer Droop-E, the son of Bay Area great E-40. Droop-E wisely figured out that Ramona Gonzalez’s voice would work great on the warped, luxuriant track of his new single “N The Traffic,” which also features fellow Bay rapper J-Stalin. The video, from director Josyln Rose Lyons, casts the three of them in a slow-motion tableau of ’30s nightclub life. It’s a good video and a great song, and you should seriously check it out below.
Droop-E’s Hungry And Humble EP is coming soon.
