    Gifted New Jersey rapper J.Littles looks back to his stellar fall 2016 project, ‘7 Day Cleanse,’ to showcase his directorial chops in his new visuals for the Joell Ortiz-featured “No Way Out.” It’s actually closer to a short film than your standard music video in its presentation, with Littles putting together a clip reminiscent of an early ‘90s action-thriller.

    Throughout the video, you watch as the Hudson County native runs in every which way through his hood to avoid a seemingly annoyed police officer. But when the two actually meet up? Well, we won’t spoil it for you, but things may not be exactly how they seem. And that goes for both the viewer and the character portrayed by Littles.

    The thing is, it’s easy to understand why he’s trying to escape, and he actually touches on that in his rhymes: “I gotta grind like this music’s my only way out the hood/ Even when I’m doin’ bad, I tell ‘em I’m doin’ good/ Rooted to the streets, so I’m very misunderstood/ Married to the game, but trust her I never could.”

    The track itself is produced by LilzHP, whose boom-bap backdrop perfectly suits Littles and his guest, Brooklyn stalwart Joell Ortiz. He actually offers Littles a reprieve in this clip, as the two catch up to play some chess and talk things through before it’s back off to the races and the surprising conclusion.

    You can watch the video for “No Way Out” now. Littles’ ‘7 Day Cleanse’ is available through all major digital retailers and streaming services via Grind City Music Group.
