As a city, Indiana is one of the more interesting parts of the United States. On the surface, Indiana seems like a fairly white state with cornfields and fundamental basketball players everywhere. While this may be true in some parts, Indiana also has a lot of culture, namely in music. Known for classic acts like Michael Jackson, the state has also made its’ name in the Rap game, which has paved the way for younger acts to come in and benefit from that. One of those artists utilizing his opportunity has been Paper Cleveland, who checks into our pages for the first time with his new video for, “Copy Cat.”
Produced by TyjuanOnTheBeat, “Copy Cat” is a fun, engaging record that finds Cleveland completely spazzing over the infectious production. Belting off clever one-liners and cocky cadences, Cleveland exuberates a necessary dose of swagger, making the listener believe most of, if not all of his lyrics. Directed by WillyFromIndy, the video starts off with an iPhone shot of a few hockey players fighting. It then pans over to Cleveland rapping on the ice, wearing a Carmelo Anthony jersey and showing some of that aforementioned swagger we talked about. In all, the video does a great job of bringing an already enjoyable song to life.
Check out the video below and get familiar with Paper Cleveland.
