Bronx MC Dot Demo counts A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Wu-Tang, Boot Camp Clik, and others among his influences, and his latest single “Black Gesus” confirms that he’s done his homework. His vibe and charisma helps him to stand out in an era saturated with nostalgia for the 1990s (Pro Era, Domo Genesis, Bishop Nehru), as well as boom-bap sweetness from j. demers on production.
The video, directed by Demo and Vintage Modern, is a black-and-white trip though church and Demo’s mind, set to some distorted vocals.
However long it takes for him to get out, rest assured that his time will come. Check out the video above.
