Fuck Yelawolf, California-based emcee Pause steams into the musical backwoods bareknuckle brawl that is hick-hop with Hit Me Like You Mean It, the latest video for a cut off his No Small Order LP. Sparse piano and rebel yells vie with scratches, pummelling boom-bap and Pause’s lyrics. Is that a bruise or has he got his tongue firmly in his cheek? You decide. While you do, watch the video and reflect on how this was also a convenient excuse to stage and film a Cali ‘donnybrook’ and get a couple of female friends to prance around wearing nearly nothing. Excellent!
