Nuge – Dreams (Dir. @shotbynaf)
DC Hip Hop Artist NUGE is thrilled to present his debut solo video for “Dreams”.
Directed by Now & Forever Productions, (whose videos have been featured on WorldStarHipHop and No Jumper), “Dreams” is a raw, emotionally charged banger with instrumentals produced by Tundra Beats.
After releasing two previous mixtapes, “340 Riverside” and “Save Me,” and racking up tens of thousands of Spotify and Soundcloud plays with collaborative singles working with artists like GPabloo on “How You Feel,” and Ty Fontaine on “Precision”, NUGE is poised to take over the game starting with this track.
NUGE’s sound combines next level bars with self-aware honesty far beyond his years, with dope melody lines and catchy hooks. Starting 2019 with a collaborative project with Ty Fontaine, “Met On A Wave,” which has been featured on high circulation hip hop blogs such as Elevator and Soul Serum, NUGE has gained major momentum culminating now in the release of his latest single. NUGE’s music has garnered praise and respect from fellow DC hip hop artists and producers, including DC rappers Z-Roc and the late Cliff Dixon, as well as respected mixing engineer NimbueMixedIt.
It’s hard to find rappers these days who stand out and inspire true excitement and passionate reactions from their fellow musicians. But when the late Cliff Dixon was asked what he thought about NUGE’s new single, he said:
“This is my favorite song! The kid has something special.”
And when Z-Roc was asked what he thought about the potential for “Dreams” as an anthem/banger to jumpstart NUGE’s career, he simply remarked:
“This goes too crazy.”
With “Dreams”, NUGE is bringing his game to the next level, cementing his status as one of the dopest up and coming young rappers out now.
