Vid Pick: Bryant Dope - Vibrant Soul
Friday, February 20, 2015

I don't think I'm breaking any news when I say most hip-hop artists like being in the spotlight. When the mic is in their hands, they want all eyes on them. That's part of the reason why this clip for Queens emcee Bryant Dope's "Vibrant Soul" is so unique. He's not in it at all.

Instead of featuring himself, Bryant Dope features performance artist Felicia Limada doing an interpretive dance to the song. It's something that's very cool, and a nice break from the egoism normally associated with hip-hop.

"Vibrant Soul" also stands in stark contrast to the misogyny that permeates so much of hip-hop, as both the song, and the video, celebrate women.

The single is the first off of Bryant Dope's upcoming project, Raw Dope 2, which is due out March 11th. If you want more info, check out the interview I did with him last year.
