Young Braised – Life Is Good [Video]

Vancouver, BC – Vancouver’s own Young Braised just dropped new visuals on us for his track “Life Is Good.” This video comes to us as part of the tail-end of Young’s campaign for his twice sold-out Japanese Tendencies mixtape. The video was shot by Will Wilkinson and edited by Strawberry Jacuzzi. Check it after the jump.

And if you’re kicking around Calgary this week, make sure you check out Young Braised tomorrow at Commonwealth and Wednesday at Local 510. Peep all the details here. And download a copy of Japanese Tendencies over here.

Young Braised - Life Is Good [Video] -

Young comes in on some sick dirty-sampled production and hits us with the 2014 rap game video equivalent of Napoleon Dynamite: there’s a Segway, there are Glossettes (those abominably uncool chocolate-covered raisins that no one eats), there’re some references to Clueless (holla Alicia Silverstone and Brittany Murphy), a fancy pantsy visit to the great Montana’s Cookhouse, and more. Also of note – at 1:01, Young Braised flosses his teeth. Because dental hygiene. And what it all boils down to; is that life is hella good.

This video also comes to us with a fresh new collaborative tee between YB and the Japanese-Canadian streetwear company MMVII (check it out here). One hudred per cent lightweight cotton. Like a boss.
