One thing I can say about Drex Carter is that he’s incredibly in touch with his emotions. “Nandina” is no exception, as it features Drex paying tribute to a friend of his who was killed. The touching track, which features an interpolation of a famous Willy Wonka song (you’ll know which one), focuses on the positive influence this friend had on Drex as an artist and as a person. I loved the rawness of the video, as it showed Drex as a vulnerable soul, but one who would not falter–even amidst the stresses and heartbreak that comes with losing someone close to you. If you’ve ever lost someone close to you, I’m sure you can empathize with his pain and see this video as something even more poignant and vivid.
