J Nics vs. Slavery, Nuclear War, and George W. Bush in the New Video for "Never Be Free"

He's tried to find the "Road to Riches." He's made "The Return." And now, local spitter J Nics is back with the third official video, "Never Be Free," off his most recent slab, Champion Rizla.

A self-described "attack [on] the reality of political and socioeconomic bondage," Nics riffs on living like a "slave for the money" while being bathed in luridly bright projections of mushroom clouds, bombed-out ghettos, the American flag, Saddam Hussein and George W. Bush saluting their troops, and other apocalyptic flashes.

See the cut for J Nics's "Never Be Free" video, co-starring Reks, directed by Last Rights' Joseph Cinnante and Up n Up's David Cabrera, and edited by UnkleLuc.
