PREMIERE: Stro “Fly Guy Rap / Boondocks”

While most 9-year-olds were watching Power Rangers and wrestling with their peers, Stro was emulating legendary emcees like Rakim and Nas. “I feel like I’ve been rapping my entire life,” he says. Now 19 years old, he’s proven himself as a formidable lyricist, most recently with his mixtape Best By Far. Adding a new visual component to the project, Stro returns with the music video for “Fly Guy Rap / Boondocks,” a spoof on the iconic TV show Yo! MTV Raps.

“I got the idea for the video from an interview Method Man did with Yo! MTV Raps. He was being interviewed by Fab 5 Freddy on a tour bus. As far as the experience shooting the video, it was hell. The first scene was filmed on top of a tour bus in NYC when it was like 20 degrees outside. If you look closely, you can see a tear rolling down Jack Thriller’s face because it was so cold. We did a few takes and eventually got a good one, but it was brick outside. Plus, we had to duck and dodge traffic lights. The second scene was very hard too. I had to film the whole scene backwards, rap it backwards, and perform it backwards. But me and the homie @shotbycisco went hard and got it done.”

The construction of the track itself, however, was less hectic. “‘Fly Guy Rap / Boondocks’ is two songs in one,” he explains. “The first being an instrumental looped by myself and the second is produced by the bro @Laronisaloser. This song represents raw vibes. No real structure, just bars and chill beats.”

Watch the premiere of the video for “Fly Guy Rap / Boondocks” in the player above, listen to Stro’s Best By Far mixtape below, and stay tuned for more: “I’m working on a new EP coming out this year. I think my fan base believes that I can rap, and now it’s time to make them believe in my record making abilities.”
