Watch Wara From The NBHD's "Slangin" video.
In 2014, few songs have presented the yin and the yang of drug selling more realistically than Wara From The NBHD's "Slangin," taken from his dope project Kidnapped. The second installment of a two-part series that began with "Raw," the video shows Wara and some associates scheming, running from the cops and shooting dice.
In his verses, Wara presents a nuanced portrait of "slangin" life, his voice raising to say, "You think I like crack? You think I like shootin' niggas?" But by the hook, he's back to thinking that "when I'm slangin' drugs, ooh I get that feeling." A dichotomous relationship with the dealing lifestyle that so many of his peers glorify is just one of the things that sets Wara apart from the pack.
