Tony Shhnow has shared a visual for “Finessin'”, an elegant track from his recent mixtape Reflexions. A mainstay in Atlanta’s underground hip-hop scene, his prolific release schedule and innovative sound has helped him pioneer the emerging “plugg” sub-genre. On mixtape cut “Finessin'”, he delivers a whirlwind of sharp lyricism atop lush, graceful instrumentation, and pairs it with an engaging new visual shot by Mykal Taylor.
“Finessin'” contains rich production from WHOTHEHELLISCARLO, centred around surreal strings and nostalgic guitars layered above crisp, infectious percussion. Atop the luxurious instrumentation, Shhnow delivers dynamic, fluid verses that showcase his eclectic lyrical style, drawing the listener further into the track’s cloudy atmosphere. Paired with a fresh new visual that finds him delivering a charismatic performance, and uses subdued lighting and hues to capture the song’s mellow, smooth feel, “Finessin'” makes for a release that is easy to keep re-visiting.
“Finessin'” appears on Shhnow’s recent mixtape Reflexions, an 18-track project filled with progressive hip-hop soundscapes that flirt with plugg, trap, and R&B, and features appearances from OJ Da Juiceman, Zelooperz, Matt Ox, and more.
