Vancouver-based rap veteran Moka Only has been a staple of the Canadian rap game for nearly two decades now, and the prolific emcee shows no signs of slowing down. Complex Canada has the exclusive premiere of his new video for “No,” the first single from his forthcoming record Magickal Weirdness.
“No” has a chilled-out, throwback vibe complete with vinyl crackles, piano trills, and a saturated boom-bap. The founding member of Swollen Members can still put a melodic hook together, too—the chorus for “No” is a subtle, but enduring earworm. If there’s one constant truth in this world, it’s this: Moka Only always brings it home.
Watch the Michelle Kee-directed music video for “No” above, and check out Moka Only’s tour dates below. Magickal Weirdness drops July 15th on URBNET/Beautiful Records.
