Snakehips Drops “For The F^_^k Of It” Single + Video From ‘Stay Home Tapes’ EP
Snakehips’ stripped-back beat for “For The F^_^k Of It” is an infectious romp featuring singer Jeremih and rapper Aminé.
With Snakehips six-track EP, Stay Home Tapes, out and being digested by audiophiles — we are excited to share with you the project’s second single and video. “For The F^_^k Of It” is an eagerly anticipated effort featuring chart-topping Def Jam signee Jeremih, as well as breakthrough rapper Aminé. Accompanying this joint is also a soundtrack for the second part of a three-part mini-movie, which centers around a middle-aged woman named Sue and her trippy adventures through Los Angeles.
The wordplay between these two primetime players (Jeremih and Aminé) take center stage, while Snakehips stripped-back rolling beat captures your attention and your body’s motions. It is a simple call-to-action to go out, enjoy life and letting go “for the f*** of it,” which is a natural and enjoyable way to live. For those just getting familiar with Snakehips, they are one of the game’s most recognized tastemakers who have collaborated with the likes of Tinashe, Anderson .Paak and Joey Bada$$.
Designed to be reminiscent of the old school hip-hop sounds that originally inspired Snakehips, the Stay Home Tapes serve as a nod and homage to their day one fans. “The EP is a bunch of tunes that we made after a crazy few years of touring and traveling the world. We called it ‘Stay Home’ as a kind of jokey way to express all the mad stuff you experience and the bizarre characters you meet along the way,” Snakehips wrote in a release. “The video goes with this idea too. It’s a crazy narrative that we cooked up with director Can Evgin based on an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit!”
Snakehips might be in separate places (James is in L.A. and Ollie is in London), but that hasn’t stopped the duo from finding deeply rich sonic inspirations.
