He made his name with party-positive bangers like the platinum-selling “Bands”, but Rob Vicious‘s introspective new material radiates a bleary-eyed intensity. Bringing one of his most adventurous songs to life, the Shoreline Mafia emcee shares “Terminal V”, a trippy new music video. Produced by Hurtboy AG & Foster, “Terminal V” finds Rob experimenting with his drawly vocals, using auto-tune and falsetto to mimic the frenzied mind-state of an abrupt comedown.
In the video, premiered by FAULT, Rob stands guard over the wreckage of a plane crash, wielding a double-barrel shotgun as he works through his demons.
“Terminal V” is the latest visual from Breakthrough, Rob’s second full-length mixtape. The product of a year’s worth of tireless recording, Rob culled the project’s 13 tracks from a pool of over 100 demos, selecting the hardest-hitting and most personal of the bunch. The resulting body of work reveals a new side of Rob Vicious, balancing outlandish flexes with deep introspection. Previous videos from the project include the raucous “Wat It Do” and the haunting clip for the DJ Paul-produced “L3V3L”. The follow-up to 2018’s Traplantic, Breakthrough is available on all platforms via Atlantic Records.
