GODBODYWATI's "Nobody Else" video is an ode to his crew and roots: "It's just me and 1160/ I don't need nobody else." The visual features the 1160 Collective's full roster, which formed out of a Section-8 apartment in Crown Heights in 2013, and represents their bond and ascent to underground recognition.
"'Nobody Else' is basically the anthem for what it feels like to be 1160," GODBODYWATI told The FADER in an email. "When we had no lights, when we had no food in the fridge when it felt like the whole fuckin' world was against us we made it out by ourselves with nobody's help."
Under the moniker Wati Heru, his first concept EP Dystopia FM imagined a post-apocalyptic New York from the lens of a pirate radio station. Midnight Madina, which drops June 6, is his first full-length album and is two years in the making. Watch the video for "Nobody Else," produced by Kemal and Lord Plawz, above.
