Noah-O & DJ Reese Delight & Incite On “Threats”

 In News

Busy year for Noah-O, huh?

Back in March, the Richmond hip-hop icon stretched his entrepreneurial skills with the opening of the Charged Up Flagship store on Broad Street in the heart of the city. Couple months later, he dropped his latest dazzling hip-hop record, TRILLipino. This Saturday, he’s opening up for Pusha T on Brown’s Island for one of the more anticipated concerts of the year. Oh — and he has a new video out for a freestyle that’s part of DJ Reese‘s upcoming 50 Tungs 100 Lungs Volume 5. The grind never stops.

Bumping and captivating, the “Threats” freestyle finds Noah-O recounting the recent moves he made as well as the mantras that have guided him thus far in his career. “Used to be salty that my name was never mentioned / Til I realize I’m alive to change the definition,” he flows, peeling back the curtain on his “work first” mentality that drives every aspect of his life. The video, directed by 5th Rule, finds Noah-O in the streets of the city as well as the bright backdrop of his flagship store, seizing the focus with his punchy rhymes and consuming presence.

All of this is performed over a tight beat provided by DJ Reese and is the first taste of what’s in store for us on the fifth volume of his 50 Tungs 100 Lungs mixtape. The four volumes previously came out in 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2007, and while the timeline has gaps like a Super J Cup chronology, it doesn’t diminish the prestige or legend of these mixtapes. It’s bound to be a who’s who of local MCs and if Noah-O’s own rap here is any indication, it’s going to be a can’t-miss tape for all Richmond rap lovers.

Until we get more news on that mixtape, you can watch the video for “Threats” below. Make sure to follow Noah-0 (link) and DJ Reese (link) on Instagram too for more updates and news.
