As mentioned before, authenticity in life is essential, but it’s vital in Hip-Hop. No matter what you’re talking about people will grasp it if it’s real, clamoring for even a bit of relatability. Or, they try to live vicariously through you, and the latter is definitely the case for the rising Dubai native, Nuckles, and his roughneck lifestyle. This Musician Nuckles, whose real name is Nasser Dajani, showcases some of that lifestyle in his videos.
The videos for HABIBI and MY SQUAD for example, literally look like a militia commercial, as Nuckles and his crew roam around the streets and deserted warehouses, sporting some of the heaviest artillery I’ve seen in a music video. The feat is pretty daring and ultimately incredible to watch, given the fact that the rest of the world is not as lax with guns.
As for the record, you can instantly see the Drill impact that Nuckles has had on his music. Using minimal lyricism, and instead going for a style that is more conducive to being able to sing the words, the song allows you to offer more energy, naturally bringing out a savage in all of us as we watch Nuckles really live it.
