North Carolina youngster Lil Shock finally has dropped his first music video with fiery visuals for “Rockstar.” 2019 may be the year that ends up breaking Shock or at least putting him at the forefront of the swelling Carolina movement that’s been going strong this year. He’s been putting up respectable numbers on his Soundcloud and “Rockstar” is his most popular song to date. For the video, the emerging emcee teams up with director Rick Lancaster who is also a native of North Carolina and has been making noise in his own right. The video features Lil Shock burning belongings of his in a field as he wanders through a field strumming an electric guitar. The next step for Shock will be for him to expand on his sound to separate himself from the rest of the pack. He seems to be a product of this somber and sad rap wave and that’s not a problem as long as he’s able to carve out and hone his own sound to stand out.

Watch the visuals for Lil Shock’s debut video “Rockstar” after the break.
