It's about time somebody brought back those old black-and-white "life on the road" videos that were so popular among arena metal bands in the '80s, and it might as well be Cool Nutz. As Portland's resident rap ambassador, the dude has spent a lot of time away from home, bringing Pacific Northwest hip-hop to the world. In this clip for "The Greatest," the first leak from the upcoming COOL NUTZ ='s DOPE, we see the man born Terrance Scott chilling on airplanes, spitting in the studio, doing photo sessions, snowboarding, hanging with friends and, of course, rocking crowds. All that's missing is the classic "collapsing exhausted on a hotel bed" shot.
Nutz's new album, dropping May 21, features guest appearances from such rhyme heavyweights as E-40, Kurupt and Tech N9ne as well as Stumptown emcee-beatmaker Tope, who produced this track.
