If there's one thing you notice about 645AR's flow, it's the high-pitched squeak he raps in. Somehow it works, and there's no better example than the rapper's latest release "Sum Bout U." With a feature from FKA twigs, the video finds the pair in a match-up that's become even more familiar since our months in lockdown: digital performer and voyeur. Logging onto a website called "OnlyCamzzz," 645AR heads straight for twigs' stream, finding her in a variety of colorful fits and backdrops.
Along with the video's release, FKA twigs shared a sex work mutual support-fundraiser to provide direct financial support to sex workers and donated £10,000 to the cause. Alongside Lysistrata, SWARM, and East London Strippers Collective, it's also aimed at “challenging public attitudes, tackling stigma, and fighting for [their] rights and protections.”
"I feel like now is the time for me to step forward, pay respect, and shine a light on the challenges facing sex workers, especially during these uncertain times," the singer said, citing her own experience working as a hostess in a gentlemen's club.
