New This Week: “Pray 4 Me (feat. VL Deck)” music video from Riiyoo & Lil Lee, plus new music videos from Hasten Mercy and The Nileram

It’s officially fall and we’re certainly “falling” for this new batch of clients! The latest HIP Picks – Weekly Client Roundup is here; take a look at the videos, and learn more about the clips by reading below.

“Pray 4 Me (feat. VL Deck)” Music Video: Riiyoo & Lil Lee (R&B / hip-hop)

Riiyoo & Lil Lee met while working at a local food chain, where they discovered a shared passion for music. “Pray 4 Me”, their latest track together, is genuine and humble at its core. It also features a verse by Atlanta street legend VL Deck. Directed by Jay Legion, the video is shot inside an atmospheric church.

“These Things” Music Video: Hasten Mercy (Rock / new wave)

Michael S. Baker has a long history of finding evocative sonic elements, from his work in Head Fake to his current project Hasten Mercy. “These Things”, from the three-song Hasten Mercy EP, is a textural showcase. The video for “These Things” (directed by Michael S. Baker himself) is moody, wistful, and shot all in black-and white.

“RIDE” Music Video: The Nileram (Dance / pop / electronic)

R&B artist The Nileram makes music that will embrace your soul and give you an out-of-body experience. She’s also built a solid following of more than 42k listeners on streaming platforms with prior hits like “COFFEE” and “WIN”. “RIDE” captures what The Nileram does best, and the “RIDE” video (directed by Randolph “Chiumba Dope” McKinney and Adam Verhasselt) is a trip to surreal landscapes, from futuristic cities to something right out of a Dali painting.
