Premiere: Chris Webby, Tech N9ne and Jarren Benton Wild Out in “Ohh Noo” Video
Chris Webby is having himself a solid year so far. Fresh off Tech N9ne's sprawling Special Effects Tour with Tech, Murs, Krizz Kaliko and Zuse that spanned two months and wrapped up earlier this month, Webby grabs Tech and 2014 XXL Freshman Jarren Benton for the wild, eerie new video for his track "Ohh Noo," premiering today exclusively with XXL. Shot during a tour stop in Atlanta, Webby, Jarren and Tech aren't afraid to show off their weirder sides for the visual, with Jarren's typically schizophrenic flow matching Tech N9ne's patented technical excellence creating an almost horror movie effect over the nursery-rhyme-gone-wrong feel of the beat. With a dark, empty bar outfitted with a massive deer head and a flashlight video effect via director Zach Zubko that makes things seem stranger than they would normally appear, Webby and crew inhabit the dark side in a way that makes the song come to life.
"Ohh Noo" was produced by Brix and comes off Webby's debut full-length for eOne, called Chemically Imbalanced, which dropped last October. In addition to Tech and Jarren, Webby grabs features from Dizzy Wright, Jon Connor, Talib Kweli, B-Real and Trae Tha Truth as well as production from Scott Storch, Kato and ID Labs on the LP.
The Special Effects Tour may have come to end end for Chris Webby, but the Connecticut-born MC won't be staying idle; on July 15, Webby is plotting the release of a brand new EP called JAMO-NEAT produced entirely by SAP. The project was recorded during an eight-day, Jameson whiskey-fueled stretch at Miami's Circle House Studios and is already available for pre-order in the iTunes store. Check out Chris Webby's new video with Tech N9ne and Jarren Benton above, and listen to the first single off JAMO-NEAT called "Whatchu Need," featuring SAP and Stacey Michelle, below.
