Pounds – “Francis Ford” (Video & EP Stream)

The heavy weight emcee Pounds starts off his 2018 campaign with the visuals for his song “Francis Ford” directed by Otto The Director. The track is a gripping insight into his hometown of  Rochester, N.Y

The VHS-produced track stems from the rapper’s great October release, “Rules and Parameters”, that further demonstrated his knack for delivering lyrically vivid mafioso rap. After all, this particular sub-genre is at its finest when emcees can bring such harsh, difficult stories to life with their words. And to say Pounds does that on “Francis Ford” would be an understatement.

The New York rapper is conflicted not just on the track, but in the video as well. Otto captures this with scenes of Pounds contemplating his life as a hustler and as a father, two hats he wears proudly but, again, with severe conflict. It’s for those reasons that when he spits bars like, “The city’s on fire so I gotta vent/ Make it past twenty’s an accomplishment,” you can feel that mental struggle.
