In the wise words of Wara From the NBHD, “The streets breed a–holes,” a sentiment perfectly embodied in “Slangin,” Wara’s latest video. It is a continuation of the narrative from Wara’s previous music video “Raw” featuring GrandeMa
“Slangin” is the culmination of Wara’s natural storytelling ability and his overarching message. “Slangin” is the antithesis to “Raw.” Instead of expensive cars and joy rides, “Slangin” demonstrates what it takes to survive in the hood and the consequences of that survival. As Wara’s brother so boldly proclaims, “You think I like crack? You think I like shootin n–gas?/ You think I like runnin’ from the cops like a loser n–ga?” The ultimate triumph of “Raw” is how it gives a visual representation to the environment that would foster such animosity that one would have to ask these biting rhetorical questions. It’s a glimpse into the world Wara built on Kidnapped.
