Video: Jaah SLT – “Rent Free”
The Charlotte Upstart Evades A State Trooper In His Energetic New Video
“Be prepared to see a whole lot more of Jaah in the coming months as he continues his ascension.” – ELEVATOR
“I think there’s no question that he’s going to be the next big thing out of North Carolina sooner rather than later.” – Lyrical Lemonade
Jaah SLT can switch gears at the drop of a hat. In his latest single, “Rent Free,” the Alamo Records signee effortlessly ups his intensity over buzzing synths and booming 808s. He keeps the listener on the edge of their seat as he changes topics and moods– within a few lines, he goes from cheekily apologizing to a girl he spurned to evading a white officer who doesn’t “f*ck with n****s.”
In the accompanying video, directed by LURXH Productions, Jaah gleefully hotwires a racist state trooper’s car and smokes “a whole pound” on his porch while accompanied by a ski mask-clad crew. “Rent Free” follows up “Toxic,” another high-octane banger which finds him talking smack with infectious charisma. Both songs will appear on his upcoming project, set to drop this summer via Alamo Records.
Jaah’s new project will follow in the wake of “In My Bag (Remix),” featuring Dallas diva Erica Banks. The original “In My Bag” gained particular traction in Texas, the home of chopped-and-screwed music, thanks to a TikTok dance trend set to a slowed version of the song which inspired over 157k video creations. Before releasing the Erica Banks-featuring remix, Jaah shared a Houston-style remix of the song produced by club god BeatKing. With over 1.5 million streams on Spotify, “In My Bag” was the second TikTok hit for the North Carolina native, following 2019’s “Tuff“ which hit 27 million streams after generating over 250k video creations on the video platform.
“Rent Free,” “Toxic,” and “In My Bag (Remix)” are clear signs that Jaah SLT will be the latest young star out of North Carolina. Stay tuned for more music from the budding 20-year-old artist in the near future.
