Early this year, queer Brooklyn artist Will Sheridan released the second album of his G.I.A.N.T. (Going In And Never Timid) series, aptly titled, G2a “brutally honest” 10-track effort that saw Sheridan returning to his hip-hop roots with newfound fearlessness. The album name, Sheridan said, is a play on the Swahili word, “Jitu,” which translates to “Giant”—fitting, considering the towering emcee stands at an impressive 6’8”.

“Cut a Rug,” produced by Carvo, is one of the album’s bitchiest cuts, now equipped with a spastic music video starring a cast of nightlife regulars, or “creatures,” as Sheridan described. Co-directed by Matt Sparks and the rapper himself, the technicolor clip offers a completely manic visual experience, much like being over-served at 4 a.m. in a dingy local bar (relatable).

“[The] video captures the energy of Brooklyn and Metropolitan, where I seem to carry the most,” Sheridan said, referring to the LGBTQ Williamsburg bar he regularly throws parties at. “This is kind of a huge thank you to all the people that come out and support me, my music and art on the regular.”
