Video: Abdus 'Wow'

Video for lo-fi emcee Abdus Wow.


In the video for "Wow," Durban's Abdus raps in a raspy and slightly high-pitched Zulu flow as he's abducted then worked on in an (evil?) scientist lab. The lo-fi grittiness of the synth beat and harshness of Abdu's delivery play like a nod to the recent North American trap phenomenon, all the way from South Africa. Watch the Tiny Mungwe-directed video below, stay tuned 'til the 3-minute mark for the change-up.
