    Blessed with prodigious musical ability and a keen sense of visual aesthetics, $NOT is turning heads all across the rap game.


    The 24-year-old artist's meteoric rise attracted the attention of A$AP Rocky, who connected with $NOT for Doja, a visually striking clip for one of the hardest-hitting tracks from $NOT's upcoming album Ethereal. Rocky's creative agency, AWGE, also came on board to provide creative direction to the album as a whole.

    Produced by Dee B, Doja is a bass-boosted banger that finds $NOT wilding out over sirenic vocal samples and speaker-knocking 808s, shouting down his haters with four-letter epithets. On the song's second verse, Rocky slides in with a supernatural calm, assaulting the upbeat with assonant syllables.

    Directed by HIDJI, a director from AWGE, the new video for Doja follows both rappers as they go beast mode in the Five Boroughs. Though he hails from Miami, $NOT was born in NYC, and he tours the city like a local, heading from Bed-Stuy brownstones to chic tattoo parlors on neon-lit streets. Ever the Uptown ambassador, Rocky takes $NOT and his crew through Harlem, stopping in project backyards, subway stations, and more.

    Throughout the video, a mini version of the hooded rapper performs in a picture-in-picture inset, encouraging his fans to rap along. The video ends with a touching tribute to Virgil Abloh and A$AP Yams, as the music shifts to one of the album's more "ethereal" tracks and Rocky gazes at a memorial mural that honors both of his late friends.

    On Ethereal, $NOT welcomes an all-star cast of collaborators, ranging from peers like Trippie Redd and Kevin Abstract to some key musical influences, like A$AP Rocky, Juicy J, and Joey Bada$$. Featuring an additional appearance from Teddi Jones, Ethereal arrives on February 11th via 300 Ent.

    “It’s called Ethereal because each song seems to belong to another world,” says $NOT.

    With Ethereal on the way, and with creative direction from A$AP Rocky, $NOT looks likely to reach yet another level of artistry and stardom this year. Keep an eye on the young rapper as he continues to evolve into an icon on his own uncompromising terms.
