Today, Pressa, Sleepy Hallow, and Sheff G released the music video for their collaboration, “Head Tap’’ produced by D.A Got That Dope. With angsty undertones and visuals to match this vibe, the chemistry between the rappers is unexpectedly compelling. Fans have been excited for the visual release since the audio dropped in early June, and the video does not disappoint.
Directed by Moka Blu and Antwan Smith, the artists met in Miami to execute their creative vision for the music video.
There are various images of police cars set on fire, suggesting a theme of rebellion and resurrection; this may be a metaphor for the current political climate, or may pull from Pressa’s childhood in the Jane-Finch area of northwest Toronto. Violence, gangs, and poverty are layered in his adolescent experience, which he has been vocal about in various interviews. He has discussed the stigmatization of the neighbourhood, the economic hardships the community faces, and the lack of support for teens in the area.
Like every good rap music video, there are solo shots of the artists vibing against an engaging background, and an emphasis on their jewelry, cash, and cars.
