A few months back Maségo, the King Of TrapScat, released the amazing project Loose Thoughts. Throughout 10-tracks, Maségo seamlessly weaves jazz, hip-hop, trap, R&B and more to great success. If you haven’t already checked out the project, give it a listen via Soundcloud, Apple Music, or Spotify. Now, Maségo has released the visuals to one of the tracks from Loose Thoughts, “Small Talk (TrapScat T0 Cali)”.
The visuals were directed by Christopher Behrmann, Flockey and Mirza Odabaşı. The talented Masego even has an iPhone app which allows folks to cut out the middleman and connect. It’s called Keep In Touch. The music video for “Small Talk (TrapScat T0 Cali)” is politically charged, mentioning the deaths of black men at the hands of police, yet punctured with the beautifully blended music of Maségo and powerfully fluid dancing.
The music video has a cinematic quality that comfortably brushes into short film territory. After you’ve caught up with all things Maségo, which include the projects The Pink Polo EP and TrapHouseJazz, make sure to circle back to our interview with the artist for our First Friday series here.
