Tampa based artist JG premieres his brand new music video “Birds In LA” featuring Atlanta rapper Rich The Kid. Produced by No Gen, JG doesn’t just rap about getting at girls on the percolating “Birds in LA,” but the newcomer also throws down his gauntlet to declare his residence in the hip-hop community. Directed by Miles Cable the music video set in the reflective overlook of the ominous Los Angeles skyline. The single is a first look into JG’s upcoming debut EP, 3 Feet From Gold, due out later this year on independent Field of Dreams Entertainment.
JG explains, “I want to get across that I’m in this bitch now. I’m here to stay. For this song, I’m constantly inspired by everything. Grimey bitches. Instagram hoes. Fake ass rappers. Fuck boys. Haters. My Past. My future. My son. My family. All that is motivation to me. I just want people to feel something when they hear the record. Whether they hear it and get pissed off or hear it and get hyped up, it doesn’t matter to me… as long as it elicits some type of emotion for them.”
“Rich was really cool,” JG says about collaborating with the rapper known for his popular mixtapes. JG connected with Rich the Kid and Caskey through his engineer. “He came to the studio, laid the shit down and killed it for the visual as well.”
Fans can already catch JG’s next single “My Side” on his hometown station, Tampa’s 95.7 The Beat, Power 106.1 and Orlando’s WPRK 91.5. On the breezy “My Side,” JG checks haters while remembering his come up, rapping, “It got really tough around grade 10 / When the roof of my bedroom caved in / And we ain’t really have no money saved then.” Listen to “My Side” and watch his previously released music video “Water” directed by LO Films below.
