With a month off in the summer of 2011, and amazing collaborators who wanted to help, Half Straddle set out to make their first-ever rap song and accompanying video. Playing off the idioms of the genre, Half Straddle’s rad girl rappers drop push-ups with no knees, late nights with Soledad O’Brien, and references to their bangs as a knowingly ridiculous vocabulary for throwing shade, all set in a lusciously drenched visual realm and accompanied by deep beats that need to be played really loud for full effect.
