As of recently, the hip-hop industry has been influenced by different genres of music; such as rock, electronic, dancehall, and Latin music. However, it is rare to see all of these genres mixed into one artist. For San Diego’s artist, Ladotee, versatility is second nature. From his Atlanta-influenced cadences, Vince Staple-type of production, dancehall melodies, Spanish lyrics and high-energy, rock-style performances, Ladotee may be music’s next big star.
Ladotee has been stirring up quite the momentum since the release of his “Loca” single, which has surpassed over 175,000 plays on Spotify and growing daily. The bilingual, Mexican-American rapper first took interest in the music industry at the age of 9-years-old by being exposed to West Coast legend, Mac Dre’s music.
Today, Ladotee brings his Jikay-produced “Loca” to life with the official music video. Ladotee had this to say on the video premiere:
“I’m excited to release this music video because this is the first record that I’ve recorded mixing Spanish lyrics to it. It’s special to me because I’m a Mexican-American and this was my first time being in Mexico City. It was special and humbling to see the amount of love and support we received out there. We were able to pull off a lot of production work with nearly no budget. The cars, the club, and the block party were all put together for us out of love and belief in me as an artist.
People should tune in to me and follow/subscribe to my social media and YouTube channel. You can expect a new music video every 2 weeks. I have a lot of really good visuals releasing soon and some that are out on my channel already. Big shout out to RESPECT. Magazine for premiering this video!”
Directed by Top Tier Vision, Ladotee finds himself partying with a beautiful young woman, who happens to be the leader of a local gang. Though everything appears to be going smooth, things suddenly take a turn for the worse in the cinematic visual. Watch Ladoetee’s official music video for “Loca” above.
