Miami-based rapper Major D Star has been building a steady buzz since his 2011 mixtape I’m So Major dropped; having performed with major acts like Chicago legend Twista and Grammy-nominated rapper Big Sean, his follow-up—hosted by the esteemed DJ Smallz and presented by the late-Slim Dunkin—more than set the stage for his eventual success.
His latest release which focused around a series of Barry Gordy sound bites, Motown Sound, was home to the break-out single “Solo.” Now, the late-night paranoia anthem has received a visual treatment.
The slick treatment was directed by Ghost, the director of photography at Frequent Flyer Films. Set in both an ominous outdoor setting, with the rapper pulled up, in front of a Blue BMW, and in a dark smoky background, the clip follows suit with his previous high-quality content. The young rapper who—as the song suggests—is mostly shown rolling by himself, rocking his chains and flashing cash as the background flashes with a splashy colorful treatment given viewers the same lit feeling as the artist as he sips his drink.
He’s joined only by members of his inner circle; the visual brings the track to life.
The song’s central premise is keeping your circle lean and mean; it’s an anthemic track made for driving the metropolis after dark. It’s the first visual of 2018 from the rapper, who currently resides in Florida. He has a lot of quality on deck for 2018, so keep your eyes peeled.
While you wait, add “Solo” to all your playlists.
