Husser’s new video For “Can’t Blame ’Em” is one of the best things you will see this month
Montreal, QC – At the end of last week, Montreal artist (and one third of The Posterz) Husser released a brand new single and Émile Lavoie directed video for “Can’t Blame ‘Em” (produced by JOATOUCH) off Husser’s upcoming debut LP titled Geto Rock For The Youth.
“Can’t Blame ‘Em” is a masterpiece – visually and sonically. Because it’s exactly the kind of song we’ve come to expect from Husser’s solo endeavours. The Posterz are still one of my favourite Canadian rap crews on the come up. And part of that is because each one of the guys – Husser, Kris, and Joey – have their own distinct flavour. Husser is on some experimental tip, and also one of the more technically inclined rappers on the come up. He could just drop freestyles for the rest of his career and everyone’s face would probably melt off.
As Husser explained to the Fader, the song was written when he was on tour in Europe with The Posterz and torn between staying faithful to his girl, and getting it on with the European females. So while the homies went out to smash, Husser stepped into the closet of a hotel room in Paris to pen this one. And the end result is one of the most unfiltered, uncensored, youth riot tracks 2017 has seen.
The video also delivers an important commentary on class, and how the bigger man always wants to get you down and make you feel lesser-than. There’s also a nod to Steve Jobs in there; and Husser paralleling himself to Jobs, and wearing a turtleneck, and throwing down at some mock launch event in a parallel universe. Apparently the hope is that this video will also elevate Husser to sex symbol status. Watch the video below, and keep it locked on the release of Geto Rock For The Youth later this year.
