HipHopDX Premiere – Brazilian artist NIKO IS has recruited Curren$y for his “3rd World Money,” video, which was shot partly in Texas, New Orleans and Florida. Directed by Trapsolutely, the visual finds the two veteran MCs chillin’ and smoking spliffs as they swap potent verses.
“Open new doors to perception,” NIKO says to HipHopDX. “How much does it take to feel rich? How much does it take to feel safe? Third world money, recorded with love and peace. Survival of the chillest. Cheers. I hope you live a 100 years.”
“3rd World Money” was produced by Thanks Joey and recorded partly in São Paulo, Brazil. It comes from NIKO’s latest project UNIKO, which boasts features from longtime collaborator Talib Kweli, Tego Calderon and, of course, Spitta Andretti, among others.
