The Video:

Atlanta emcee Tez McClain released his most recent record, Scoundrel, just over a month ago and has since released videos for "By Any Means" and "Flick'n," the latter of which just debuted as the New Joint Of The Day on BET's 106th & Park this past Friday. Today, he is releasing the video for "Art vs Hustle," which was produced by Natural Disaster and was directed by Raw Work Films. The video was premiered this morning by The Smoking Section.

The song’s subject matter is as deep as the songs flow is smooth. In "Art vs Hustle," Tez questions the exaggeration and glorification of the empty culture he sees behind "hustling" and the rappers who exploit to stay on top. Tez raps, "You can’t write your shit / Let alone wife a chick / But you can fuckk his bitch / That’s a hit that’ll likely stick." While definitely criticizing the darker sides of fame, Tez bring it back to how this "hustling" impacts people closer to him with lines like "You too old to be broke as hell / College graduate and why the fuck you got dope for sale?" It’s a tightrope that rappers like Tez walk, trying to play the game yet keep their integrity. Tez ends his verse leaving us with this: "Art versus hustle, it may be a split decision."
