UPDATE: Clammy Clams and Vince just dropped the official visuals for “All Nite” earlier this morning (June 23). It’s a California slideshow bleeding into itself as Staples raps circles around the competition. Peep the video below.
Checkout this new behind the scenes clip of Vince and Clams Casino creating the video for “All Nite”:
Clams Casino‘s ethereal cloud rap beats have kept my head in the clouds since 2011. I stumbled across his first Instrumentals project my sophomore year of college and haven’t looked down since. His trademark hazy sound has backed the likes of Lil’ B, Big K.R.I.T., and most recently three songs from Vince Staples‘ debut LP Summertime ’06, which makes “All Nite,” the third single from Clams’ upcoming major label debut 32 Levels, such a jarring new cut.
32 Levels’ first single “Blast” was a return to form after the claustrophobic beats he gave to Mac Miller and Danny Brown; Staples’ lyrics are ground-level gritty as ever (“I’ll block the mane like La Flame/Better bite the bullet ‘fo the bullet fight ya brain”), but Clams’ open and airy beat gives Staples plenty of room to wile out. “All Nite” is a one-man mosh pit in the middle of a white-hot field compared to the cramped environs of the duo’s last big pairing “Norf Norf,” the yin and yang that many have been waiting for.
Give this new cut a spin and keep an eye out for 32 Levels when it drops this July.
