Mean's impressive last LP, NSFW: Not Safe For Work, was one of the standout Singaporean hip-hop albums of 2015, chock-filled with engaging tunes and brilliant productions. Previous singles such as 'Emotions' and 'Lights, Camera, Action' were fantastic, but to be honest, we could easily see half the songs on the record functioning as singles.
With that much to choose from, its no wonder his newest music video is a two-parter featuring a pair of exceptional tracks in 'Take Me' and 'Dive'. Filmed in Australia and directed by Street Style Poser, the first half of the clip finds The Dapper Rapper, draped in a snazzy Loewe scarf, atop Sydney's breezy coastal line, reciting verses from the smooth and mellow FAUXE-produced 'Take Me'.

In sharp contrast, the second half of showcases the grittier and more nocturnal track 'Dive', transplanting Mean from picaresque natural scenery onto seedy, urban alleyways. This section sees Mean ramping up the aggression, uniformed in hooded streetwear and Lunettes Kollektion x Christopher Shannon sunglasses, spitting rhymes along a particularly rough-looking stretch of graffiti-strewn laneway.
