I’m a sucker for animated music videos, so it’s no wonder that I love the official visuals accompanying Deca’s latest feature, Gabriel Ratchet. Even if you hate cartoons (Who hates cartoons?!?), you have to admire his creative approach to both the visuals and his verses. Unique creations like this are a breath of fresh air. Deca even mans the boards on the record, cooking up a simplistic, dusty beat littered with intriguing, fun samples. On the mic, Deca showcases his engaging, personable style as he spits some poetic bars. Hip-hop doesn’t get much better than this. Gabriel Ratchet can be found on Deca’s The Ocean LP, available for digital purchase via iTunes.
