Watch Tunde Olaniran In 'The Highway'

Tunde Olaniran stars in the choreographed, vampire-themed video for 'The Highway.'


Back in February Nigerian-American experimentalist Tunde Olaniran first leaked falsetto bars on "The Highway," off his recent Yung Archetype EP. Speaking from a squeaky bass pulpit, Michigan-based Tunde reflected on gentrification in his home state. The track now has accompanying visuals in True Bloody hip-hop fashion. The video's carefully practiced dance routine offers a bit of insight into the brilliance of Tunde's fully choreographed live performances. Watch "The Highway" below and catch Tunde live in DC this Saturday, April 5th, with DJ Underdog.
