Scotty IV (pronounced ‘eye-vee’) comes into the new year hot with his single “No Dice.” Written and recorded by the artist himself, “No Dice” features Stay Out Late affiliates Tahir and Charlie Noir. The track challenges contemporary hip-hop sounds with Scotty’s ferocious and emotion-filled melodies, Tahir’s bone-biting flow, and Charlie Noir’s witty lyricism.
“No Dice” is Scotty’s most vulnerable work to date. Alongside famed producer Prezident Jeff, the duo reject sonic boundaries traditionally heard hailing from Toronto. “No Dice” spits visceral emotion with an “I-don’t-give-a-fuck” attitude on the hook and a West-coast inspired bassline akin to tracks by DJ Mustard, E-40 and Tyga.
In 2018 alone, Scotty IV opened for Sickkick; headlined Manifesto, and performed at New York’s famed SOB’s.
