Another week, another dope Mikey Dollaz video. This week, The FADER brings us the latest visual from the Chicago Drill emcee for the Obey City-produced “Hot Boy,” a highlight from Mikey‘s new mixtape Picture Me Rollin’. In their premiere of the original single release, Pigeons and Planes praised the track, saying, “The beat is wild, but Mikey’s voice remains front and center as the commanding force, even through that crazy change-up halfway through.” “Hot Boy” follows the releases of videos for the Sonny Digital-produced “Good As It Gets,” premiered by HipHopDX, and “Flat Or Molly,” premiered by ACCLAIM Mag. “Hot Boy” also follows the recent video for the Strict Face-produced “Fuck MeRight,” which Dummy Mag called a “visual concoction that entwines itself to the aquatic and crystalline sounds of Strict Face‘s production.” “Hot Boy” depicts a debaucherous, drug-filled gathering in Mikey Dollaz‘ RV. As the beat slows down, from pinging party music to a deeper bass-heavy sound, Mikey Dollaz and his crew move in slow motion through a field and through the streets of Chicago, the beat expertly mimicking the party’s comedown phase.
“Me and my manager had been talking about doing a two-part song and when Obey sent that first beat we thought we could throw another Obey beat on the back of it cuz it was so short,” Mikey explains to The FADER. “We rented an RV for the video and smoked dat bitch out wit the guys and then picked up some girls and took ’em to this abandoned farm house to try to get some dope outdoor shots.”
