Today, The DJBooth is proud to premiere My Inner Way, the brand new video from underground NY emcee Rome Clientel. The visuals are a perfect fit for the song, and what really captured our attention is the video’s simplicity. Rome isn’t trying to play a character or flaunt his swag, instead he’s actually dressed a lot like the blue collar man he evidently is. That’s really his biggest appeal; he isn’t talking smack or playing games, just telling it like it was and letting his music speak for itself. Of course, it helps when that music is driven by an incredibly smooth beat from Kount Fif, which is filled with beautiful piano notes and vocal samples. You can check out more no-nonsense hip-hop like this from Rome on his latest project, The Empire 2: Battlegrounds EP, available for free stream and download right here on The DJBooth.
