Over the years, rising rapper Well$ has built himself up as the new voice of his block in North Carolina. Now he’s praising one of his biggest influences Juvenile in his latest visual for “’98 Juvie (Remix).” Well$ enlists fellow Charlotte rapper Deniro Farrar to show us how Juvie The Great helped them grow and prosper as musicians over Sipho The Gift’s dramatic production.
In the clip directed by the Summit Collective, Well$ and Farrar give us a rare tour of their respective neighborhoods in Charlotte, from their family’s home to their local graveyard. Although Charlotte and New Orleans are two very different places, Wells and Farrar honor their favorite rapper by extracting the spirit of Juvie and his hometown, NOLA’s infamous the Magnolia projects, and spreading it throughout uncharted areas of their hood.
“’98 Juvie (Remix)” serves as the first single from the Immaculate Taste artist’s forthcoming mixtape The Way I’m Living Makes My Mom Nervous, which is the follow-up to his 2014 project MTSYD: The Revenge of the African Booty Scratcher. Look out for TWILMMMN coming later this summer.
Take a walk through Well$ and Deniro Farrar’s hood and watch them pay homage to Juvenile in the visual for “’98 Juvie (Remix)” below.
