Buck N’ Nice – Same Old Me [Video]

Ottawa, ON – Two of my favourite dudes out in Ottawa – Buck N’ Nice – just released their latest video for the track “Same Old Me” off Us Versus Them.

This is the second video release off the album. And it’s about damn time. MC SawBuck and DJ So Nice have been campaigning for this video for the last little while via Thunderclap, which allows you to get social media support from your homies. Now the video is here, for your viewing pleasure. Check it after the jump.

For the record: this is probably the most serious Buck N’ Nice video I’ve encountered. SawBuck’s flow is very Slim Shady; it’s that classic aggressive Eminem flow that hits you right in the solar plexus. Especially on the first verse.

Then SawBuck delivers the hook: “Put my cards on the table/ Try to change my plans/ All I did was give away my hands/ I’m still the same old me.”

The video shows SawBuck and So Nice doing their thing with supreme seriousness. There are no smiles here. It is a seriously serious video. And what it all comes down to is that through all of life’s changes, our inner core as people doesn’t actually change. We stay the same. And SawBuck lays it all out for us: he’s the same old dude he’s always been.

The track also dives into identities within the rap game. I think one of my favourite lines through it all is when SB says he’s the, “New school living with the knowledge of the old school.” I feel that 100 percent.

There’s also that part (one-minute into the track) where 50 Cent’s “Many Men (Wish Death)” gets sampled. Specifically, that line where Fif says “I talk to God, but he don’t say nothing back.” Shout-out to Buck N’ Nice for sampling 50. Salute!
