If you haven’t heard of rapper Kaycee Ortiz yet, you’re LATE!!! The Chicago native just got a shout out of support from super fan Missy Elliott on twitter, and she’s recently hooked up with the über cool Mister Wallace (He did that dope It Girl track!), and his FUTUREHOOD label. Her latest track 30 Dollar Coat, from debut mixtape Beach Street, now has a grainy, raw visual that totally reveals why verse slayer Ortiz is all the rage. Shot in a single room, surrounded by her friends, the viewer gets a woozy perspective of Ortiz (wearing a coat similar to one she bought at Urban Outfitters for $30) as she parties, and vocalizes about her escapades with boys…just another night out with the girls! Stream Beach Street and watch 30 Dollar Coat below!
Kaycee Ortiz (via The Fader):
“Every time I wear that coat I feel I’d feel so rich, like the wildest of my dreams have come true. That’s the feeling I wanted to convey in this song. I grew up with pretty much nothing, I always dreamed of fur coats, expensive perfume, and couture fashions to the heavens. There are so many kids growing up in that same predicament. I want to give them that feeling of luxury that drives me to work hard every day. That’s the feeling music gives me… made me try when I felt I couldn’t try anymore. I feel that’s what music is for, to inspire and uplift. And I want to pass that gift along.”
