Dag Savage Drops Gritty and Authentic “DRUGS” A Hip-Hop Visual Feast

In the realm of gritty and authentic hip-hop, Dag Savage’s latest release, “DRUGS,” featuring CO$$ and Choosey, is a powerful testament to lyricism and poetic expression. The accompanying video, shot in a reservoir gully and skillfully edited with captivating “lens flare” effects, adds a dreamy and cinematic quality to the track’s visual narrative. Produced by the renowned Exile, the track exudes the classic hip-hop feel that has become a signature of Big Noise’s representation. Exile, known for his prowess with the Akai MPC 2000XL, brings a timeless sound to the forefront, reminding new-school producers to acquaint themselves with this iconic machine. The return of audio hardware has beat-makers in an analog state of mind.

“Dag Savage DRUGS” is not just a song; it’s a journey into the realms of mind-altering metaphors and vivid hip-hop visuals. Johaz, CO$$, and Choosey seamlessly switch up their flows within each 16-bar verse, showcasing a choreographed flow arrangement that exemplifies the creative unity within Dirty Science and the crew behind this project.

The video, shot in a reservoir gully, provides a fitting backdrop for the raw and unfiltered vibe of the track. The clever editing, coupled with the “lens flair” effects, adds a layer of depth, making the visual experience as compelling as the music itself. Johaz takes center stage in the video, delivering a seasoned flow and voice tone reminiscent of the hip-hop greats. His presence, combined with the soulful track crafted by Exile, asserts Dag Savage’s position as a force to be reckoned with in the underground hip-hop scene.
