The Orlando by way of Brazil based artist NIKO IS just dropped his new video “Coca” via Hip Hop DX. The “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” meets Los Angeles inspired video features NIKO with producer and collaborator Thanks Joey. Directed by Narcy, the video is true to the Hunter S. Thompson aesthetic, depicting the two characters in a distorted version of reality as they lounge in a convertible under the sun and bum around the beach. NIKO says of the song,”Music is like dope. Music Makes people feel invincible. We wanted to capture that in audio form. Fear and loathing in tropicalia. NARCY filmed the video and executed our vision perfectly. Gonzo. Puro.”
