Not too long ago, emerging rhyme slayer, Clay James, went viral on Twitter for his unbelievable freestyle abilities. Today, he shows newfound fans that the bars weren’t just a fluke, he can make hit music too. For the upcoming film, Out On The Lim, James links up with G-Man On The Beat from Front Pierce to talk to the women for a little bit on the stylistic new visual, properly titled “Hold Me Down.”
Available via Playas Circle Music Group, the Reese Davis-directed visual stars Clay James as a man on a mission looking for one woman who will right beside him when he takes on the world. Linking up with G-Man On The Beat, James raps about being approached by the baddest of the baddests women and that the popularity, make-up and enhancements don’t impress him at all. But give him a woman with morals, goals and perspective, and he will love and appreciate her like the queen she is. The visual is a direct follow-up to James’ viral freestyle over the “Dogecoin” freestyle.
“Hold Me Down” is merely a glimpse of what Clay James has in store for the next generation of Hip Hop. Originally from Savannah, James was discovered by the Atlanta icon-himself Big Boi of the legendary duo Outkast. It was Big Boi who hand-picked “Hold Me Down” for the film’s soundtrack. James explains:
“Hold me down is a special record to me because it was produced by my little cousin G-man On Tha Beat, and this is our first released record together. On top of that for my music video, I was styled by my high school friend Christy Marshall. So this one is a real family affair.”
Along with supplying music, James is also set to co-star in the upcoming film as the character Tommy. Out On A Lim stars Jamal Woolard (Notorious). The coming-of-age drama is about an ex-high school football star who discovers that one bad decision can have dire consequences.
