On September 5th, 2019, Nashville rapper Mike Floss released his 70’s inspired music video for track, “FOTW” (Freak Of The Week), directed by Nigel Callisto Pelligree of Altru Creative. The single, released in late 2018, garnished over 55 thousand streams on Spotify alone. Now, nearly a year later, the established Nashville rapper put out a music video compliment. In just over a month, the video has seen over 100 thousand streams and continues to climb.
In the FOTW video, Floss is dressed in vintage clothing, performing for a crowd that matches his 70’s aesthetic. The opening shot finds the rapper in his green room before a performance, dressed in an all white suit. Like stepping into a time machine, for the rest of the three minute spectacle you’re transported to a place of romanticized nostalgia and vintage disco attitudes. Floss is a rockstar, with several fans stopping him for a polaroid picture as he navigates his way through the sea of adoring fans toward the stage. The rapper delivers a commanding performance, backed by his very fitting, also vintage-dressed band, dripping in 1970’s aesthetic. The crowd goes crazy as Floss, with his afro hairstyle and giant red sunglasses, begins his set. It’s a wild, vivid, nostalgic 1970’s party, that will make you wish you could go back in time just to be in attendance.
