New York’s AJRadico shares a new video for “BALLHOG,” the latest single from his upcoming project Transit, out February 25th.
In “BALLHOG,” AJ pokes fun at the opposing forces against him. He stays true to pop references from Shrek to Wicked, rapping like he’s running laps around rivals: “Tweet tweet, but they never left the nest.” Built on a charismatic chime melody, the self produced composition feels like it fits only to a protagonist’s shoe, too deep in celebration to be reminded of losses or demises.

BALLHOG’s video finds AJ and a partner-in-crime looking for a pivot in their approach to making ends meet. Aesthetically, they swap flashiness for authenticity as they depart from central NYC to the outskirts of the city. The most ornate piece – a full Babylon Biker suit – implies a switch in lifestyle post our now emptier pandemic streets. In contrast to previous videos, “Armor” and “Centre,” “BALLHOG” paints a different vision of AJ in transit: one more metallicized and expensive. In the end, the duo takes the main stage together, laughing at the come up, and with a little more cash than what they started out with.
