With their sophomore project JUNGA dropping October 30th, hip-hop group The Posterz turn things up for their “Bulalay” visual, which premiered via The FADER. Clutching a brilliantly decorated onyx-colored chicken and flanked by a Rottweiler, sits members of the trio in a wild, apocalyptic backdrop. The Posterz, which consists of rappers Husser and Kris the $pirit, along with producer Joey Sherrett, have been dubbed by Complex as the “pillars of the new wave of Montreal rap.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
“To us that’s what it is, the world is the just a jungle, everywhere is the same If we look at it logically and realistically, the real world is the spirit world,” The Posterz explained to The FADER. “Bulalay is a minimal hip-hop beat with tribal vibes. It’s leaving a lot of room for Husser and $pirit’s vocals to shine. The goal with this song was to represent a good day in the jungle. A happy day in the lives of $pirit and Husser. Festive vibes.”
The Posterz are no strangers to success – their debut EP, Starships and Dark Tints, landed them on the radars of the Huffington Post, who named them a “Top 10 Artists to Follow” in 2014, and in NoiseyUS/UK/France/Canada, Complex, Red Bull Music, Les InRocks, and the Montreal Gazette. Two years after their debut release, JUNGA shows off their musical diversity, ranging from modern-day boom-bap (“Want It All”) to a rock-infused love/hate anthem (“Ben Up”), and even a flip of synth-pop duo Secret Sun (“Cold Coast Remix.”) Stay tuned for JUNGA, slated to release on October 30th.
