ZelooperZ Gets Trippy in ‘Saggin’ Video
"Saggin," the new video from ZelooperZ, might have you reaching for the Advil. In what looks like a psychedelic trip, the Detroit MC revisits last year's Help with a series of quick cuts and overwhelming colors. The rapper's barked delivery has as much in common with punk rock as it does with the formalist rap that so many are used to coming out of Motor City, but it's laser-focused in a way that cuts through the too-eager smoke machines ZelooperZ rented for the clip.
ZelooperZ is best known for his involvement in Bruiser Brigade, the Danny Brown-led crew that represents some of the Detroit hip-hop's scene's weirdest, most avant-garde fronts. It was on Brown's "Kush Coma" that ZelooperZ was first introduced to a wide audience; that song also featured A$AP Rocky. As for the leader of the crew, Danny Brown has been parlaying his rap success into cracks at other fields. He has been hard at work penning a children's book, one that aims to instill positive body images into the minds of young Black girls. Aside from that, he contributed the theme song to Fresh Off The Boat, the ABC sitcom that chronicles the life of restaurateur Eddie Huang as he and his immigrant family try to navigate life in America.
