Hip hop trio 99 Neighbors have released a video for their latest single, “Ripstick.”
The black-and-white visual features the group embroiled in a fist fight, intercut with shots of them performing on abandoned railroad tracks. “Got a ripstick for ’em if he playing / Ain’t no hopscotch, dip quick, yeah, I heard they sprayin’ / If I ain’t, I’m well connected with a homie on live / Got the whole thing captured if she send a message tonight,” member Hanknative raps on the chorus.
“We felt like a fight scene represented the energy of the song well, but we also wanted to have fun with shooting a music video, so we did both,” the Vermont collective explained in a statement.
“Ripstick” is the follow-up to the collective’s previous singles “Fake Pods” and “Welcome to Chili’s.” Earlier in the year, they released their debut album, Television, and signed a deal with Nice Work/Warner Records.
