Nillie – I Got You (Prod. ShatterGlass) [Video]
Calgary, AB – Nillie is gearing up to drop his forthcoming #SleepyheadzZz mixtape. So to get y’all hyped up on it, he’s hit us with his second single release off the project: “I Got You.”
The joint is the ultimate ode to “Rolling Stone” by The Weeknd. Nillie hops in on a dope ShatterGlass beat that samples “Rolling Stone,” and then the Big N hits us with a not-so-black-and-white version of the original Weeknd visual. The video was directed by The Makan Brothers (who actually recently scored a sweet video screening at the Calgary International Film Festival for their movie Jewel Fools – which I saw, and it was dope). Check the video for “I Got You” after the jump.
Nillie is seated with a rooftop view. He’s got a nondescript pretty female’s hands wrapped around him. And he drops his verses. He even does the Abel Tesfaye lip-licking schtick. It’s all in the details, people! I feel like this whole arrangement would be particularly tricky for Nillie because he tends to need to wild out during his performances. This feels like entrapment. But that’s what this joint is about, nah? It’s about the extremism of love and lust.
Towards the end of the video, the nondescript pretty female shows herself and kills Nillie. She puts a bag around his head and he dies. The colour scheme switches to black-and-white. Except for the blood we see dripping down Nillie’s dead arm. This whole time he was claiming he got her. But at the end of it all, she got him.
