If you’re a fan of hearing critical lyrics and certified flows then this song is definitely for you. Richmond has not seen anything like this before! This movement literally cannot be duplicated when talking about talent and esthetic.
The Richmond All-Starz visual is like traveling through time
It was very obvious that the director Zuri Fleming, also known as 10k. Zuri took her time with creating the concept of this video. There were many elements like graffiti captions and dice games that stayed true to the initial theme. They brought back the cutting-edge aura of the ’90s in under 3 minutes. There are introduction graffiti tags for each artist and throughout the video; there are also static television visual effects.
The whole video is dope in its entirety, and the fact that the ending scene is at the newly iconic Richmond sign in the heart of the city made it clear that there is pride that comes along with this collective being from Richmond, VA. Every single rapper in the video had a specific charismatic vibe to them. If the Richmond All-Starz continues to drop crazy visuals like these Richmond, VA will be a place where people look for authentic hip-hop music.
