New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Fast-rising hip-hop talent Joey Trap has dropped the official video for his track 'SPICY', out 12th January via Young Rick Squad
/ PIVTL Projects.
Shot in the unlikely confines of a diner, with Joey chowing down on a sizable portion of chicken wings, girl on each side, the slick, risque visuals for 'SPICY' are a perfect match for the confident vocals and trap-infused beats of the track itself. It follows the video drop of 'DIE4ME', with both tracks featuring on Joey's most recent album, the sprawling, 25-track Playlist For The End Of The World (Deluxe).
He explains: "For 'SPICY' I was trying to go for the vibe of my 'Tables' saga which is a popular song by me and I also directed/edited that first 'Tables' music video. It was in a cafeteria with two girls on each side of me feeding me steak. This time the 'Spicy' video starts with me at a diner booth and I'm getting fed hot wings by two girls."

'I really wanted it to feel similar because of the beats 'SPICY' and 'Tables' have the same rhythm and similar melodies", Joey adds. 'SPICY' is the mature, 'R Rated' version, showing Joey's development in both his video directing skills as well as lyrical ability. "We older now. Bigger things to come", he says.
Continuing to push the envelope with his unique flow and vocal manipulation, Joey Trap has drawn comparisons to the likes of Tyler, The Creator, XXXtentacion and Travis
Scott. He dropped no fewer than four albums in 2020 alone, amassing hundreds of millions of streams as his reputation continues to rise.
One of the hardest working and fastest rising talents in hip-hop, Joey Trap kicks off the new year with the same energy that he finished the last.
