Tellaman Shares Colorful Music Video For ‘Whipped’ Featuring Nasty C and Shekhinah

Watch Tellaman's new music video.

"Whipped" is one of the strongest songs from Tellaman's stellar debut album God Decides, which came out in February. The album, which Tella produced in its entirety, is not heavy on features. Apart from Nasty C and Shekhinah, it also features appearances from crownedYung, Tay Iwar and Rowlene.
