San Francisco rapper and Whole Foods advocate Larry June has teamed up with producer Ryan Hemsworth for “The Scale,”
The track is the lead single from his forthcoming Larry 2 EP, which is set to release in February.
“When I heard the beat I saw a movie,” Larry June tells The FADER. “I happened to have my scale in the kitchen at the time and was sipping a big mojito, so I was already in a whole different mindstate.” Directed by Goodboyshady, all eyes are on Larry June in “The Scale” video, as neighbors give him a side-eye while SWAT teams circle the block before pulling up to his doorstep.
“People use a scale to weigh food, and also other things,” the charismatic artist explains. “So if the scale is in the kitchen and the police raid the house, you have an excuse to say you were baking a cake the other day.” He adds: “I record all my music in the kitchen. Say I might be recording the verse, and I got a taste for organic waffle in between, I can stop the beat and get some inspiration, maybe ride my bike in between, and come back home and finish the track.
