TECH N9NE - STILL RIGHT HERE (FEAT. X-RAIDED, GARRETT RAFF, & SIMEON)

Hunnypot is in love with this new video dropped by one of our favorite all-time artists, Tech N9ne.  Joined by X-RaidedGarrett Raff, and Simeon, "Still Right Here" checks off all the boxes (and then some) for what is surely a video pick for the ages.  It's also a perfect way to cap off 2022, highlighting the mastery of last years killer release, ASIN9NE.  I can't wait to see what's next for Tech in 2023, but if its anything like the success he has seen over the past few years - we are all in for a HUGE treat from one of the best to ever chop it!

A few call out's from todays press release via Juggernaut Sound

 

November 30, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) Closing out a monumental chapter with a bold big screen-worthy statement, Tech N9ne proudly presents a cinematic new music video for “Still Right Here” [feat. X-Raided, Garrett Raff, & Simeon] today via his Strange Music label. It stands out as the final release from his massive 22nd full-length LP, ASIN9NE, released in October 2021. 

About the video, Tech N9ne commented, "'Still Right Here’ is a MASSIVE song and shooting the video was just that, A MASSIVE PRODUCTION! We went all out on this one and trust me when I say, it'll be worth the wait."

The visual plays out like an epic sci-fi drama. It focuses on a cohort of space travelers, including Tech, X-Raided, Garrett Raff, and Simeon. Their ship floats through the galaxy in a haze of breezy loneliness evocative of the track’s chantable chorus. The clip intercuts moments on a remote desert planet as the otherworldly search continues with more questions. 

This interplanetary journey notably came to life on Strange’s in-house soundstage in Kansas City buoyed by striking CGI and special effects. At the same time, X-Raided’s bulletproof flow proves incendiary, while Simeon shines with swagger and style. In between Raff’s soulful hook, Tech gets introspective on an impactful verse of his own. It offers a fitting conclusion to the ASIN9NE age.
