With Pac Div‘s six-year hiatus officially done, the trio of seasoned lyricists have returned to do what they do best: making music for the ladies. For their latest effort, “Gorgeous,” the Cali natives aren’t holding back as they shoot their shot—and it’s all net.
Embracing split-screen visuals, LIKE, Mibbs and BeYoung turn on the charm as they vibe out in a warehouse with three impressionable young women. Serenading their respective honeys one-by-one, the Los Angeles crew demonstrates their chemistry over a cerebral, Dilla-esque beat courtesy of Esta (of SOULECTION).
Reuniting with their cohort Danny from Topshelf, who directed videos like “Top Down” and “Posted,” all three MCs allow their #WCW to be the center of attention as they openly spit about their intentions.
“Gorgeous” is a highlight off 1st Baptist, the group’s most recent full-length project since 2012’s GMB. Demonstrating lyrical acrobatics over a kaleidoscopic collection of West Coast instrumentals, the rap trio bounce lines off one another, trading bars, uniting for hooks and generally sounding enthralled with the act of rapping.
With production from DJ Dahi, Swiff D, Huss, Esta, James Rodgers and more, 1st Baptist captures the essence and vibe of Pac Div’s original run of mixtapes that has attributed largely to their worldwide allure.
Following the release of 1st Baptist, Pac Div hasn’t missed a beat delivering to fans. The trio recently made a grand-scale appearance at the Dooinit Festival and unleashed an intense visual for “Stoked,” a psychedelic, energetic banger.
Peep the dialed-down visual for “Gorgeous” below.
