Premiere: Watch the New Video for Cazwell’s “Dance Like You Got Good Credit”

Openly gay rapper Cazwell’s new song “Dance Like You Got Good Credit” and corresponding music video (NYC-based) parodies normative lifestyle values in the traditional rap-god video format. The lyrics are almost a little too real for many hip-hop listeners, and sure to stir up some controversy. Riding the recent vaporwave internet trend, Cazwell’s video still manages to balance the satire with a healthy amount of humor. And not to mention a sick beat.

Cazwell’s new album Hard 2 B Fresh comes out on September 30th via Peace Bisquit.

Cazwell creates an eclectic fusion of moombathon (electro/reggaeton/house) with rap and colorful lyrics.

The Massachusetts-born Cazwell has proven himself a hard worker: from becoming a YouTube sensation after a million people viewed his “Ice Cream Truck” music video in a single week, to producing a steady flow of tracks and videos that has his engaging charisma and personality immersed in it. He has since earned credibility with danceable hip hop tracks −including “Rice & Beans” and “I Seen Beyoncé At Burger King” and “No Selfie Control” − that impressively showcase his hypomanic take on pop culture. “Good Credit” featuring Cherie Lily tackles the debt crisis the United States is in – a situation Cazwell finds amusing because “we go broke trying to make ourselves look rich”. Cazwell has been described as “what would have happened if Eminem had grown up on Madonna’s front lawn.”
