SpaceLAB Recordings proudly presents “Nobody” - the 2nd single, & music video from C-Zar Van Gogh’s anticipated sophomore LP, This Time Next Year.
“Nobody” is a unique contradiction of a song – Produced by Jake Palumbo, with a dusty, sample-driven beat that’s both melodic & melancholy, a chorus that’s both catchy & introspective. The music video features Van Gogh walking the streets of New York solo, narrating his story; trying to metaphorically “get in the door”, only to find the doors are repeatedly locked, & no one is answering.
This Time Next Year is also not your typical hip-hop album; devoid of cursing or profanity, with a positive uplifting message to the listeners to take action to better themselves & their environment, it still manages to keep both feet firmly planted in the streets with a sound & verbiage that fans of CZVG’s debut LP – 2011’s Hood Stimulus Package – will not be disappointed by. Conscious gangster rap? Gangster conscious rap? How about just good music.
