Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz’ collaborative project, Mona Lisa, made quite an impact upon its release on 10-26-18. The project premiered at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart and held that spot for more than a week. It also premiered at #3 on the Amazon Hip-Hop chart and held down the #1 spot on Bandcamp’s bestseller list
Today, the duo has unveiled the first visual, “Cocaine Fingertips,” from the project via an exclusive premiere with HipHopDx.
“‘Cocaine Fingertips” was one of the joints on the album where I decided to just have fun with bars over Apollo’s raw production” Joell stated. “I knew it needed a visual once we listened back! I felt like the video should be both fun and raw. Lotta fun filming this! Hope you all enjoy.”
“Cocaine Fingertips” called for a video as soon as it was recorded” Apollo Brown echoed. “It was completely visual from the point the beat dropped. Joell went in super raw on this joint and gave you the content and wordplay deserved for this type of sound. We laughed pretty much the whole session. We also laughed pretty much the entire making of the video. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
