Portland lyricist Amine has been creating a storm out here in the real world and it’s all been passing me by. After my teenage daughter begged me to watch several of his videos, I decided to give his music a chance. His new self-directed visuals for “REDMERCEDES”. Amine continues his tongue-in-cheek style of delivery, in full blown white-face. While the mother in me cringes at the fact that my teenage daughter is crushing on this young, carefree rapper whose references are not always NSFW, the music writer in me applauds his ingenuity and influence. Let’s face it, Amine has quite a following and almost 3M views in less than a week is not to be sniffed it. Even if you aren’t completely bowled over by his music, this video will surely give you something to chuckle about.
