Electro-soul trio WatchTheDuck has fittingly teamed up with T.I. for their latest video, “Hustler.”
Providing a mash-up of scenes to match the track’s genre-bending sound, the Drew Kirsch-directed clip is a compelling and colorful visual roller coaster.
“Hustle Gang in the VIP,” raps Tip. “Your reputation couldn’t measure to the G I be / You ni**as just smalls, I’m B.I.G.”
Speaking to Rap-Up, WtD says that their Tip-assisted banger is meant to redefine “Hustler.”
“We want to extend the definition of ‘Hustler’ to anyone who’s actively fighting for a dream,” they explained. “Hustlers are not just limited to ganstas but it’s everyone who’s interning, assisting, waitressing/bartending, couch-crashing, Uber/Lyft driving, etc. just to make their dream happen. To us, the art isn’t in the end result, the art is the actual hustle.”
“Hustler’s” release coincides with the deluxe edition of the group’s EP, The Trojan Horse, which was executive produced by T.I., Pharrell Williams, Tricky Stewart, and Steve Aoki. The project features 11 remixes to go along with the original seven tracks. Plus, it includes never-before-seen videos.
