Understand – [Anklegod] & [Stack Apes]

An artist’s first video is an important piece of their journey, without a doubt the young legend Anklegod has blessed us with a video that is sure to turn heads. Anklegod is one of the hottest artists coming out of the west coast and after dropping two outstanding projects and a SoundCloud full of heaters, he has linked up with his running mate Stack Apes to drop an electric new visual for “Understand” that I am highly encouraging everybody to watch. With not a moment wasted with all the insane cuts and added effects bringing in as much energy as Ank and Stack have from the second the video gets going. This is definitely one of Anklegod’s most aggressive songs to date, his intensity is at 6ix9ine levels with Stack Apes adds to it with his contributions adding to this single like gasoline to a fire.

Hip-Hop And The Grammys: It’s Complicated

On the Recording Academy’s Up-and-Down Relationship with Rap     The scent of weed wafting its way down the hall to my room from Andre3000’s neighboring after party cements the night in my mind like it was yesterday.
