Rexx Life Raj is a rapping space cadet in his new video, “Moonwalk” sent on an expedition to save Kenny Beats. The producer has been missing since the 1980s and in the style of a B-grade sci-fi flick, Raj follows a training regiment but even with his mind and body right, no amount of training can prep Raj for what’s waiting for him out there. Directed by STRIPMALL, with an assist from Adrian Per, the video’s high-gravity hijinks done with wire stunts, green screen and dime store costumes is an amusing visual for the vibey track, which is also featured on the upcoming NBA2K20 soundtrack.
“Moonwalk” arrives after Raj’s drops of “California Poppy” and “En Route” EPs but before his much anticipated next album. The track is signature Raj, a melding of his lyrical prowess and vocal versatility to seamlessly flow from rapping a witty verse into singing silky hooks. Raj leaves no song without his commanding wit and jokester wordplay and “Moonwalk” is no different: “Baggage claim like I work at Spirit but it’s only Spirit so you can relate to it.”
