Personal connections are important in the music industry and when they say that your network is your net worth, they aren’t joking. So when I had the chance to meet NC rapper Cloudy Nueve at a party and he spent his time talking to me like a real person instead of soliciting me, I knew I had to at least press play. Luckily, the music was fire as recently he dropped his new video for, “Faded Lettermen”.
Directed by creative outlet Hella Clout, the video for the track is creative as hell, utilizing a seemingly worthless television set as the star of the video where it flips through different channels with Cloudy starring in different roles. The video then pans to what looks like a home invasion, all the while Cloudy soundtracks the experience.
As for the record, Cloudy without a doubt showed up. Displaying a crazy crooning ability that, if I’m not mistaken, had no auto-tune, Cloudy creates a vibe on the song that makes you inclined to run it back more than a few times.
With a bit of a buzz starting to follow the Carolina native, don’t be surprised to see him blow sooner, rather than later. Until then, peep his new video below.
