Worlds Fair’s own Nasty Nigel shares a new video for his El Ultimo Playboy standout cut, “Groundhog Day.” Breaking down the release, the Queens rapper detailed some of experiences within his own life that would eventually transpire into this record:
I feel like I lost my grip on life. I have no structure and in that, I gained this groundhogs day-like ritual where I would wake up from wherever I crashed the night before, roam the streets for something to eat, end up at a bar, and find somewhere else to crash. When life in the hood gets tough, it’s hard to break the routine the system made for us.
I planned a trip to California where I would eventually finish the album and what was supposed to be a productive week turned into a month long bender. We decided to shoot the video and thought it would be interesting to incorporate a NY like routine in what is a seemingly impossible place to do so; Los Angeles. The trip really showed me that you are who you are, no matter where you go.
