Wifisfuneral and YBN Nahmir Hit the Ring in New “Juveniles” Video
The two rising artists hit a boxing gym in the new PplCallMeAce-directed video for their new song, "Juveniles," released today (May 24). In the clip, neither rapper really works out, opting instead to coach along crews of women in sports bras and shorts. Wifi and Nahmir are apparently training the ladies to fight.
It's an appropriately twerky setting for a song that's a few claps from being full-fledged bounce music. The track, produced by Jahlil Beats, samples violins and rhythms from Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up," as well as vocals from Lil Wayne's "Drop It Like It's Hot," and places the young rappers at a higher tempo than either normally approaches. Wifi and Nahmir both leave their mark, delivering playful punchlines, complete with jokes about Aladdin's rug and Michael Jordan having to switch sports.
"I was like 16 toting 16/Just a young fly nigga with a big dream/These bitches they be on me say macaroni, aye/Switch like Michael Jordan, shoot shots like Kobe," Nahmir raps.
The video comes on the heels of Wifisfuneral's visual for his Jay Critch-featuring single, "Knots," and the release of his Ronny J-produced track, "Genesis." The former, at least, will be featured on Wifi's forthcoming project, Ethernet Vol. 1., which is set to drop on June 8. The project has been pushed back from an initial May 25 release.
Ethernet follows Wifi's January EP, Last Time Doing Drugs, and his breakthrough July mixtape, Boy Who Cried Wolf. If "Juveniles" is any indication, the SoundCloud upstart has much more to show us, and we promise to wait impatiently for the release.
