Oddisee‘s The Iceberg album is still in my rotation, and yesterday he dropped a video for his Toine-assisted “NNGE” joint. “Never Not Getting Enough” has both of the DMV-repping artists in a variety of spots “for the county in the area surrounding DC/Maryland and Virginia know I’m with ya.” In short, it was shot in a variety of places the two grew up in Prince George’s county.
The video was directed by Zak Forrest and the song is featured on Oddisee’s The Iceberg, and you can purchase and stream that album by visiting this link. Oddisee will be in Indianapolis on May 21st at the Hi-Fi, so make sure you get your tickets!
Director’s Statement: “We shot it on the Red Dragon, around places of personal significance to Amir and Toine, in the areas where they grew up in Prince George’s county. The main goal of the video was not an aesthetic one, but to simply have fun, enjoy the journey, and reminisce at the old haunts. Every location we pulled up to, Amir and Toine would get really excited because they hadn’t been there in such a long time, so I didn’t want to kill the enthusiasm by taking any time to set anything up. So for this video we decided to try and capture the entire thing with a single lens, the 18mm Zeiss Superspeed, allowing them to do whatever they wanted and move wherever they wanted to go. We ended up using a 10mm and an 18mm to get all the surroundings and the two of them playing off of each other in performance. With this method we were able to get everything in single takes at each location and nothing got stale before it was time to move on.” – Zak
