DMV rapper Uno Hype has been featured here previously, after collaborating with several of New York City's finest, including Smoke DZA, Joey Bada$$, and the late Capital Steez. Having released his latest project, Be Good, over a month ago, Uno recently dropped a video from the project for a song titled "Plight."
The video is gritty and simplistic, with Uno rapping in front of graffiti backdrops in narrow alleys and behind chain-link fences. This simple approach allows the lyrics to come into focus, as the DMV native is speaking from his heart on this track.
"I made this song during a time where I was going through a pretty tough situation," says Uno about "Plight." "It is an anthem for the kids that feel the same way I did during that creation process."
Be Good features DZA, T'Nah Apex, and Hassani Kwess, and has production from Keys, Brandun Deshay, and DJ Dahi. Leading up to the project's release, Uno offered the following statement:
I made this project for you, your mother, and younger siblings to sit down & connect to how I was brought up and bring you the life I'm living now. As a whole it takes me back to my childhood when my mother would tell me to be good when I left for school in the morning.
More visuals from the project will follow.
