Nigerian-born, Brooklyn-based rapper Kahli Abdu is beaming in his latest video for "On This Side," the second single off his upcoming collaborative A.R.T. Project with production duo Trackpants (fka Make/Believe). The Jay Sprogell-directed visuals for the track showcase a rising emcee's downtime amongst a radiant portrait of friends & the food-filled hours leading up to a summer night's gig. From crisp shots of sunny backyard hangouts to dogs pulling skateboards, the clip smoothly compliments Abdu's croons and Trackpants' honeyed guitars. Check out the video for "On This Side" below, and catch Kahli Abdu and Trackpants October 21 at the Aputumpu CMJ Showcase in Brooklyn.
