“I feel like I’m home when I’m in New York City” raps Mikey Dollaz on the hook for “Biggie and Diddy.” Having propelled himself to the forefront of Chicago’s drill scene and working with a variety of cutting edge electronic producers to develop a sound of his own, the new music video finds the Picture Me Rollin rapper partying on Manhattan rooftops, stunting in the crowded city streets, and enjoying some authentic cuisine at Joe’s Shanghai in Chinatown before celebrating New Year 2016 with friends. “We ended up going to some dope ass party where everybody was cool as fuck and high as air,” he tells Mass Appeal in their premiere with a Q&A. “It was so live I had to get some shots while turning up in the crowd.” Produced by Anti-G of Planet Mu and Rwina Records, “Biggie and Diddy” finds Mikey Dollaz bringing his trademark hard-hitting high-energy flow over pinging synths and understated trap drums. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
MTV named Mikey Dollaz’s Picture Me Rollin one of 2016’s most underappreciated albums so far. “Biggie and Diddy” follows a cavalcade of quality video releases from the project. Last month,HYPETRAK premiered the hedonistic video for “Forever Be Dat Guy” alongside a Q&A with Mikey Dollaz. In March, The FADER debuted a video for “Hot Boy,” a beat-shifting party anthem produced by Obey City of Lucky Me. “The beat is wild, but Mikey’s voice remains front and center as the commanding force, even through that crazy change-up halfway through,” praised Pigeons & Planes. “My sound really isn’t inspired by any place or person,” Mikey Dollaz reveals. “But drugs play a big roll in how my music sounds. You can tell how high I am off the energy of my music. When I first started rapping I always recorded off drugs, so that’s what I was kind of used to and stuck on.”
