Los Angeles, CA – Ryan Coogler isn’t the only purveyor of the arts in his family.
His brother Noah goes by the name of White Dave and he’s all about fun-loving vibes, evidenced from his recently released Black Rapper EP.
For the next visual single, “Glass Slipper Shorty (G.S.S.),” White Dave has linked with his younger brother Keenan to hold down the Creative Director duties, €¥£$ for the overall directorial duties and partnered with RealStreetRadio for the premiere.
If the song’s title is giving you visions of Cinderella, there’s just cause for that.
“When my producer and I first heard this song it sounded sort of like a fairytale,” White Dave tells RealStreetRadio. “When you pair that light fluffy sound with an 808, it sounds like some Disney princesses got into some madness.”
As a student of Hip Hop, Keenan also agreed with video’s treatment.
“Our favorite rap videos growing up were always the ones with a comedic twist, and weren’t too serious, but had bright colors and absurd vignettes. I wanted to bring some of that creative to something my brother created.”
The zany clip features a backyard wrestling scene and cameos from ALLBLACK and Offset Jim — the type of organized confusion a director loves to a part of.
“This was a fun video to be a part of and such an interesting adaptation that Keenan conjured up,” €¥£$ revealed. “We love working with fresh talent like White Dave and are so appreciative for the opportunity to create with the Coogler family.”
