Adam Reverie is maintaining his comeback strongly with the recent unleashing of a brand new video. The visuals are for a single off of his previously released street collective dubbed Father Son Brother Friend. The track itself is named “Need A Moment” and it is produced by Eli Myles.
The beat is of a dope quality. The polished base, rhythmical secondary ingredients, mid-tempo pace, and pensive vibe make for a winning combination. There is no hook used on this record and the element is not missed. The content is just that compelling. The extended verse is hot. Adam Reverie enlists a powerful flow, grade A wordplay, and explicit rhymes. He airs out his grievances with the current state of Hip-Hop as well as gives some insight into how it all affects him personally. A sprinkling of lines from his thoughts includes: “And how many times will you rap that you f–ked my hoe? And how many times will you rap about expensive clothes? Before I react and I really be f–king yours. Before I call the goons and they strip you down to your draws. Man this is an art that you tainting homie. F–k freedom of expression. This a blessing homie. And those that support it, don’t say nothing to me.” Those are some thought inducing bars right there. As a whole, this is a phenomenal selection.
The video is directed by David Newbury. It takes place on a forest trail during the Autumn season. The camera essentially just follows Adam Reverie as he takes in the scenery while he expresses his dissatisfaction with the Hip-Hop community. Adam’s stroll is complimented by gorgeous nature sights and quick clean angle tricks. Additionally, he gives a very spirited performance. The flick winds down with a poetic glimpse of the Detroit talent continuing deeper down the aforementioned trail out of view of the camera before fading to black. All in all, this is a simple yet appropriate vision.
**My Two Cents: This is Adam’s first video to be featured on the site and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is tastefully done and really captures the reflective tone of the single. And the tune itself is just awesome. Adam spit some real lyrics and once again makes some very valid points about the issues that are currently plaguing the Hip-Hop scene. This is a great way for him to get the ball rolling for 2015 and I’m excited to discover what he has in store for the rest of the year.
