Video: Jaah SLT – “Dottin Up”
The North Carolina Rhymer Behind Viral Hit “Tuff” Brings Us to His Block in His New Video
“Be prepared to see a whole lot more of Jaah in the coming months as he continues his ascension.” – ELEVATOR
A natural emcee who brings a crackling energy and a wide-range of influences to his music, Jaah SLT confidently struts toward stardom. Packing his pink Nike backpack for a neighborhood tour, the North Carolina shares “Dottin Up,” his new video, premiered by Lyrical Lemonade. Running roughshod atop a minimalist, percussion-driven beat, Jaah strings together a litany of keyed-up punchlines in a hard-hitting cadence: “I’m a suburb n**** but I still keep sticks/And I put it on my life this all real sh*t/My b*tch so bad she don’t exist/And I’m livin’ real great, these n****s still pissed!” In the video, the rapper takes the streets in his white-on-white getup, shaking his blonde dreads as he smiles for the camera.
“Dottin’ Up” arrives as Jaah’s recent single “Tuff” continues to catch fire and climb charts. The Brelly Beats-produced turn-up anthem recently crossed the 1 million view threshold on YouTube, and currently sits on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart and Rolling Stone‘s Breakthrough 25 chart. Released in September 2019, “Tuff” experienced a slow-and-steady rise, eventually catching fire on TikTok (nearly 300k video creations) and making its way to urban radio in North Carolina. In February, Jaah shared his new EP 2-7-2020 via Alamo Records. As his profile continues to rise in the wake of “Tuff,” Jaah is ready to show the world what he’s capable of–stay tuned for much more.
