Press play on Jason Voorheezy’s latest.
How does one play the victim, torturer, and dirty cop all in one video? Ask young rapper Jason Voorheezy for some tips on setting that up. His recently released video “Gotham” is one of high quality and a compelling storyline, but it’s his hyped-up flow and bars that really solidify how good of a song this is.
While laying down energetic verses, the narrative shifts from him being tortured at gunpoint, to taking off a mask to reveal he was the one torturing himself all while sporting an icy grill. From there, as police arrive, he again pops up as one of the cops and kills his fellow officer.
The video directed by Albert Acosta carries on to its ending with a wild car ride and the ultimate killing of the original victim. Confusing or genius? Deeper meaning here? Is Jason telling us how he recognizes he has been the cause of his own pain, thus he assumes the role of the cop to take himself out? Keep watching and decide for yourself.
He brings a unique background, originally from Honolulu but coming to “lay” the rap game to rest. Whether it is done as violently in the video or simply with the bars is yet to be determined. One thing to note is Voorheezy isn’t afraid to go as far as necessary.
