New York’s underground rap scene is about as wild and colorful as it gets, but even by those lofty standards, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone more wild and colorful than Dai Burger. The rising rapper from Queens is like the embodiment of an acid rave; bright, exuberant and more fun than you should probably be having. As she prepares to launch her debut album Soft Serve tomorrow, she’s first shared a frenetic visual for single “Where My Girls,” making its world premiere here on Highsnobiety Music. Watch it below.
Filmed in her backyard, the visual finds Dai indulging in a seriously zany barbecue with her girls. And as she reminds us so vividly in the track, it doesn’t matter if you have “blonde, jet black, purple, orange, green hair,” you can still whip it everywhere to roll with her crew.
With the release of “Where My Girls” also comes an initiative of the same name between Dai and the Brewery Recording Studio. Though she may effuse the kind of polished badassery that most spend a lifetime trying to achieve, Dai had to work for her come-up; and so this new project will aim to aid girls between the ages of 12-18 in New York to nab them time in the studio, something the rapper could have used during her own journey. The program will offer workshops and sessions on how to produce demos and master tracks, tools any aspiring musician needs to help break through in the industry.
Dai Burger’s Soft Serve is out tomorrow, Friday, August 25.
