With his last feature, Know Us, HD easily accomplished his goal of making Boothgoers remember his name. He also set a lofty standard for his future work, earning an average 4.8 out of five stars from our readers. Today, he attempts to leap over that high bar with Thur Steez, the latest video single off his current street album. Homebody once again mans the mixing boards, crafting a sampled beat that reprises the aforementioned record’s understated, yet ear-catching vibe. The Brooklyn wunderkind matches the beat’s mood with some characteristically self-confident, punchline-packed verses. (Rewind-worthy line: “N**gas quick to disappear like they got problems with fruit.”) On the visual tip, director GoldPyrmdz takes inspiration from John Landis’s 1983 comedy, Trading Places. For Thur Steez and many more fresh cuts, check out HD’s Stepping Into Tomorrow LP, available now for free digital download.
