From the Sistine Chapel to Da Vinci’s The Last Supper mural, the music video for “Jameson Ave” takes inspiration from the long-gone era of classical art and applies old tropes to a new reality. Featuring a lot of lot of drunken partygoers, naked women, and even a marauding Rob Ford –all re-imagined as baroque paintings come to life– the video is rap culture meets fine art. Watch here.
Together, Toronto rappers Rich Kidd, Tona, and Adam Bomb make up the hard-hitting hip-hop trio Naturally Born Strangers. Their 2014 full-length debut, The Legends League Presents: Naturally Born Strangers, conceptualized in collaboration with the cult streetwear brand The Legends League, earned NBS a Juno Award for Best Rap Recording.
