Mike Boyd – Small World ft. D-Sisive / Fly Like A Butterfly [Video]

Enfield, NS – After releasing his highly-anticipated …Note The Sarcasm project (via Halflife Records) last month, Mike Boyd – Classified’s rap-cat brother on the rise – brings us his latest set of visuals for two tracks off the album: “Small World” (featuring D-Sisive) and “Fly Like A Butterfly.”

The video was directed by Philip Sportel. And in case you haven’t heard – the entire album was produced by Classified. Check it below. And head over to iTunes to cop a download of …Note The Sarcasm.

These two joints are pure gimmicky goodness. “Small World” is the anti-ego anthem for all of us with self-esteem issues; it’s all about the all-small everything. See, most rap cats are all bout’ that big life. But meanwhile, Mike and D-Sisive are telling us about the small cars and small houses and Mike’s small dog. Actually, said small dog makes a cameo appearance in this video. And then everyone’s heads get swapped. So Mike’s head is rapping on small dog’s body. And small dog’s head is super-imposed on to Mike’s body.

Then we get into the visuals for “Fly Like A Butterfly”; another ode to those of us with sensitive tendencies. Sort of. I mean, the simile of flying like a butterfly is just pure gold. Because butterflies are fluttery and graceful and stuff (and the song title is kind of reminiscent of that “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)” joint by Offspring). But the track is a smidge harder than you might assume. Mike dishes some carefully crafted lines about the rappers who have become “models” and “divas.” And the honest self-deprecating nature of it all is very refreshing.
