NIKO IS invites us to his beachside retreat in the visual for his latest single “Green Tomato Coupe” off the freshly dropped studio debut Brutus. The clip –directed by Chris Smith— provides an elegant, even romantic backdrop for this wavy and winding, salsa-laced cool-out cut, wherein NIKO’s gravelly vox delivers cerebral and introspective wordplay over shook-up piano and a shuffle that swings with the best of them. You may remember the Orlando by-way-of Brazil spitter from his most recent collaboration with Talib Kweli and Brady Watt on “Thunderman”, but it appears it’s time for your boy to command the limelight all his own. Brutus has officially landed for your listening pleasure courtesy of Kweli’s own Javotti Media and is available to purchase via iTunes today. Warm up to the hazy sonic schemes of one NIKO IS and his clip for “Green Tomato Coupe” below.
