Blckfriend Shares New Visual For “Robbery”

Rising from New York City, blckfriend has combined many genres to create a style that is distinctly his own. These elements also shine through in his live performances and experimental filmmaking, which have helped him not only accrue an audience on DSPs but also on socials, where he avidly posts freestyles to keep his fans engaged. Before signing with Babygrande Records, blckfriend had fully immersed himself in his artistry, weaving hip-hop, rock, punk, and grunge into his sound and style. 

 “It is rare to find an artist with multifaceted talents like blckfriend. When you see an artist live and he raps, sings, and plays the guitar it’s something special,” says Babygrande Founder Chuck Wilson. 

This month, the aspiring artist released his official debut single “Robbery” and the supporting visuals. The music video for “Robbery” depicts the same talent and mystery that the track conveys. Directed by Jack Rottier, who is best known for shooting a handful of Yeat’s best performing music videos, the visual takes viewers to an urban landscape where villains and thieves move through the night. His ability to combine clever wordplay with off-kilter harmonies and rhythms, and dissect a beat while also delivering catchy flows. His talent truly shines midway through the song, where he plays an original guitar solo over the beat’s somber piano melody. 

Robbery is now available for streaming on all platforms.
