Sean Slick's new music video presents the UK-based Rapper vibing over his infatuating Hip-hop beats and delivering tangible lyrical hooks like a Veteran.
Coming off the heals of his self-proclaimed magnum opus "Big Plans," Sean Slick releases a drippy music video feature for "It Is What It Is," his brand-new single coming hot-off-the-press of Sean Slick's self-coined slick-trap extended play, 'Rap Scene Menace 2.'
"It Is What It Is" gives you that smooth gyrating vibe old-school golden-era Hip-hop tracks gave millions of fans back in the 90s, and that's no surprise when Slicko—a moniker the UK-based notoriety established with his evocative and though-provoking musical aesthetics—buzzes over the opening lines, "Look, South London, You Flowin' Like You Runnin', Ey!"
In the adjoined video, the UK-based Rhymester hovers above the mic colluding within the vocal booth for a discharge of salacious anecdotes that renders-up vividly plain and clear with every shot that cuts between himself and the thick thighs he's crooning over: "See My Prefis Thick Thighs and She Stunning', Ey!"
With a modern-nod at the current mask-sporting circumstances amidst a pandemic, Sean swoons and navigates between studio-couch, mix-desk, and neon-glowing hallways as he tip-toes through a studio-backdrop and pops-off over his steady flowing hook's coruscating vibes.
Here, he concocts an intoxicating spell over all our senses. As the last-portions of hot-blooded air-pressure declares over our ears, Slicko engraves in our minds his resounding hook over his scintillating Hip-hop beat one more time, "It Is What It Is, What The People Say!"
What inspired this song's inception for you initially, and did that have anything to do with how you ended up shooting the accompanying music video for "It Is What It Is"?
You know, "It Is What It Is" has become such a staple in popular culture. It’s no longer a saying it’s a way of life just saying fuck it. At times I’m just like you know what “it is what it is” just a great way to accept things for what it is and I always had an idea to create something that just reflected my mood.
What sparked the idea behind filming "It Is What It Is," within a studio backdrop, and how do you feel it played into the narrative behind this track's vibe?
So going back to what I said, It Is What It Is was something that I just felt needed to be done. I wanted to add shock value, something sexy, something intimate, what is now being called by some as 'waver trap', and my video director Jv8 Studios thought of the great idea to film it in two sections in the studio, creating the track in the same place I recorded it. To reiterate It Is What It Is. It ain’t nothing, it’s something that’s chill and a vibe and I brought to life through the video.
What sorts of emotions were you tapping into for the sonic and visual performance caught on "Is Is What It Is"?
Emotions? Just chill really. Slick. That’s my image slick, smooth, subtle, cool like nothing too emotional, as compared to other videos, I don't like Life or joyride, this was just a vibe that the listener can just get and enjoy.
If you could give your audience a few words that would get them into the right mind-set for "It Is What It Is," what would you say?
Just chill out with your friends, your significant other, do what needs to be done and enjoy the 3 minutes of vibes and hypnotic flows, It Is What It Is, I’d say is a party banger, intimate banger, speakers get popping; whatever mood you feeling, for the women if it’s sexy it’s for you, for the fellas if you feeling chill it’s for you, if you feel you the shit it’s for you, it’s an anthem “it is what it is, what the people say” cause it’s for the people.
What was your favorite part about creating your music video?
Overall, I’d say everything. The model was dope. She's really cool, and the scenes where I’m cooling on the couch with my mask on cause well we in these strange times I had to adapt to what’s going on subliminally, in years to come people will watch the video and understand it was part of history and generally just the process I like to be involved with the littlest of details.
