Today's Rap Recommendation: Check Out Mega's New(ish) Video For "Self Made"

Though the video is nearing two months old, I've been watching/listening to it a ton lately, which makes it relevant in my mind. Plus: it's dope. It's another good looking vid from the filmmakers at Boom Tee Vee, and both the song ("Self Made") and visual accompaniment seem like a mission statement for local MC Mega. He tells us about his undying drive (or at least that of a "NASCAR participant") to get money, and takes us around his neighborhood (the Central District) with some of his guys. The beat, which the Youtube description credits White Hot for, fits nicely, and lines like "When bars I spit are that hard, ni**a, that's called imprisonment," make me wish I'd heard of this guy sooner. Get familiar.
