Wasiu released the visual to his MTLiens EP single, “Outerspace.” Directed by William Fradette, the video is inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Montreal rapper shares with The FADER, who premiered the release, on his southern-inspired sound:
Of course, MTLiens is a play on Outkast’s classic ATLiens album. Whereas ATLiens had a more welcoming atmosphere and southern hospitality to it, MTLiens is the polar opposite—just as MTL is geographically to ATL. Just as hip-hop was dominated by east coast/west coast in the mid-’90s and Atlanta was under that shadow, Montreal is under Toronto’s shadow from being recognized as a scene.
