Video: @Ariez_Onasis – “Justified”

By on January 29, 2015

“It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Ariez Onasis, the emcee who delivered a stellar debut album in The Heartbreak Kid. Fortunately the New England native has been preparing his upcoming project The Gardner Heist, which is accompanied by a few visuals from around the globe. Arriving today is the video for “Justified” the first of the slick-rapping Onasis’ offerings from TGH.

Shot on location in the U.S. & British Virgin Islands, “Justified” is a scenic trip to paradise scored by Ariez’s cool customer lyrics over producer J. Cardim‘s reworking of Madonna’s 1990 hit “Justify My Love.” AO kicks it with the locals, takes in the sights and, of course, sets his sights on a bad island chick, all while kicking sharp rhymes about how he handles his business and his women. And while I’ve been told that Ariez is reworking some classic records from a variety of artists from Frank Sinatra to Noreaga on his upcoming project, his tactful knack for colorful machismo raps is still as fresh as it was on his debut project.

Watch the Dan Moraru-directed “Justified” to enjoy an infectious track and tropical excursion all rolled into one. Ariez Onasis‘ The Gardner Heist drops this Spring.”
