Later this year, Bay Area rapper and Clear Label Records recording artist Dolla Will is planning to release his latest album, Boss Flow. As he continues to put final touches on the project, he's excited to release a video for the album's latest single, "Addicted," a follow up to the Too $hort-assisted lead single "Work That Body," along with a brand new pre-album mixtape, Life Before Dolla Will.
he video was directed by Hiero's own Casual, for his video production company Wet Foot Filmworks, and features Will not only showing off his musical chops, but also getting into some acting. "This was me making my first acting debut," explains Dolla, who shows off some promising chops in front of the camera throughout the visual. "We wanted to make sure the visuals tied into the song, showing me hustling, being addicted to the life I live."
The video opens with Dolla Will and his girl in the midst of an argument - Dolla Will eloquently referencing a unique breed of butterflies to explain his need to hustle - and while the song's hook, a chopped vocal chant of "I'm addicted to this life/ It's gon' be hard to quit," and hustle-heavy verses play along, Will spends his day on the grind, hitting the local horse tracks - betting and winning big - before catching up with a business associate for a lucrative rendezvous.

What's up everybody, the VS Tour is rolling along, and as I'm in this shady hotel in Kansas, I got a free minute to tell you about the craziness already in the first 2 days of the tour. In Tucson AZ, we had the most random of surprise guests at the show, my favorite rapper, of the last 4 years, MURS!
We chatted it up quite a bit about comics, games and hip hop. Check out this video I recorded about his Kickstarter project.
Do me a favor and please share, like and comment on it. As awesome as it is that we hung out and talked about the possibility of future moves together, people need results to drive decisions. So if each of you watched, liked and commented something like "Please Put Mega Ran on Paid Dues!!!" (with 3 or more exclamation points), for example, who knows what could happen!!
