VIDEO: Watch Orlando rapper Niko Is' new psychedelic video for "Vamoose"



Orlando’s own Niko Is has been keeping busy lately. Only two months into the year and he’s released his debut LP, Brutus, and is now embarking on a nationwide “The Peoples Champions” tour, alongside mentor Talib Kweli and Immortal Technique beginning Saturday, March 7. The Brazilian wordsmith is on the right path to make waves in hip-hop, continuing to keep his face fresh on the web by going on press runs alongside Talib and releasing new visuals to go along with his music. Here he releases the psychedelic video for Brutus’ ninth track, “Vamoose,” which corresponds perfectly with Niko’s flow. Unfortunately “The Peoples Champions” will not be stopping in Orlando, however if you’re up to it, catch Niko and the gang down in Miami on Monday, April 6.
