On a Tee – [Spotemgottem] ft. [Icewear Vezzo]

Although I am lucky enough to call the wonderful city of Chicago my home and I love the diverse and remarkable music scene here, there are definitely a few other parts of the country that hold a special place in my heart. I may not have a personal connection to most of these places, but just understanding and experiencing the fruitful and dynamic styles of music these artists are bringing to life just makes me so excited for the future of hip-hop, and I think it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the music world catches on to just how magnificently talented these emcees are.

Florida is one state that I have been following closely for years at this point, and the complex landscape and spectrum of sounds are just incredible. Michigan is another place that I am captivated by because although they’re creating a style of rap that is new and still gaining traction, these artists are truly trailblazers and trendsetters who are making some of the most inventive songs in the entire history of hip-hop.

These two places can be very different from one another, but there are also some key similarities that bring them closer than expected, so when I saw that Florida’s Spotemgottem and Michigan’s Icewear Vezzo teamed up for a BunnTree-directed music video for their track “On a Tee”, you already know that I was going to tap in with it. Spotemgottem brings so much spunk and personality to the party while Vezzo levels things out with his smooth flow and effortless attack, and this is only brought to new heights in the visual.

It might be fairly simplistic in nature, but it serves its purpose of allowing these two emcees to spit their bars and show off their expensive luxuries while smoking blunts and partying with their squads. The music video for “On a Tee” might not be the most intricate visual in the world, but it’s definitely fun to watch, making it something you need to add to your list as soon as possible.
