Andy Mineo and Wordsplayed Join Forces as Magic and Bird for New “Kidz” Video
Reach Records signee Andy Mineo has returned with yet another banger for the new Tyshane and Daniel Jordan-produced song "KIDZ," which also features Wordsplayed, who's signed to Andy's label, Miner League.
The track debuts in the accompanying comical video, where the two playfully go bar for bar as the duo Magic and Bird. The clip, produced and directed by Mike Folabi, with digital FX by Kyle Dettman, finds Andy attacking the beat while still giving praise to The Most High, setting up shop with Wordsplayed outside the legendary Waffle House.
Though viewed as a Christian rapper to most, Andy Mineo has always been one to go at hip-hop with a unique, creative approach. He told XXL back in 2014 that his decision to follow his own path had a lot to do with the culture itself. “Many publications and outlets haven’t had too much rapport on us. I also think that some of it is probably some of my faith. It’s kind of like don’t touch with the hip-hop culture. I think the hip-hop culture is sometimes afraid to engage. It’s probably some fear to engage because they don’t mix," he explained.
Nowadays, the New York rapper's mix of sounds has placed him in different spotlights in comparison to other rappers, as he's collaborated with the deaf for music videos and has had a track featured on the big screen. Back in January, Andy and Mali Music's "Desparado," off of his 2015 album Uncomfortable, was heard in the trailer for Live By Night, a film starring Ben Affleck. Simply put, the man's lyrical delivery is literally one that's hard to ignore.
So in the words of Andy Mineo himself, "feel free to turn up" with his latest offering. Watch "KIDZ" below.
