Shle Berry – “Thick Socks & Flip Flops” (Song & Video)
The video was done by Shle Berry herself along with her sponsor Mint Mindz. It opens with a couple of guys cruising through the city on a nice day discussing a pending trip to California. During their joy ride, they have a not so pleasant encounter with a female and then they happen upon a nerdy looking guy (played by Shle herself) standing on the sidewalk. They slow down to poke fun at him a bit, eventually driving off. The song launches into play afterwards. It’s a pretty creative intro. The remainder of the flick demonstrates Shle embracing and enjoying her uniqueness while at the same time snubbing the idea of conformity. Additionally, she shows off some pretty dope gear from Mint Mindz as well. The visuals conclude with Shle having a good laugh at her own expense. All in all, this was an excellently packaged piece.
**My Two Cents: This is Shle Berry’s best work by far in my opinion. NoS On The Beat supplied her with a fire instrumental and she went all in. The song is a hit in every way. The video was a ton of fun. It was a pleasant way to illustrate the theme of the selection. Plus, you have to respect a person who is so comfortable in their own skin. It really was an awesome viewing. Readers need to set aside about five minutes and take in this offering for sure. And much love to everybody who marches to the beat of their own drum. -MinM
