Fresh off his critically acclaimed debut album "Atychiphobia", Inland Empire Hip Hop artist Curtiss King has released the visual narrative for "Oh My God". The track, blessed with a triumphant horn infused production by Jansport J; finds King exploring the possibility of success as an artist. What makes this different from the thousands of offerings exploring the theme of "making it" is the tongue and cheek introspective that Curtiss has mastered over the years as a rapper. Jansport J's track is the perfect backdrop for King to navigate because the track feels unfinished to a degree and hints at some greater product yet to be reached.
"Oh My God" is shot by fellow Black Cloud Music artist Art Barz. It features a shutter type technique chronicling the success of Curtiss through connected images pulled from his shows. The candid nature of these shots shows how grounded King is despite the fact that he has a growing fan base. Images of him signing merchandise for fans is given deeper meaning when the viewer can notice a genuine look of "I can't believe this" on Curtiss' face. These minor moments go far in cementing Curtiss as one of the most authentic artists in his generation.
Curtiss is also shot in what seems to be a desolate location where the sun is his only companion. In fact the brightness produced by the natural sunlight creates an almost surreal effect that further enhances the chorus of "Oh My God". Curtiss also uses these well paced scenes to display actual accomplishments like being featured on the front page of a local paper and an award he recently received.
