G.U.N.’s “Johnny Cage” Is The Best Record In Dallas Right Now [@gunmusic40 @jeffadairfilms] Brandon Caldwell July 7, 2015 Music, Music Video 4 Comments Jeff Adair knows how to work with a subject. Sometimes there’s the freewheeling, Dallas meets Bel-Air glow of Lou CharLe$’ “Rich Kids” video and in other moments there’s the stop and stare gloss of Fat Pimp’s “Hurt They Feelings”. For Dallas’ answer to mosh rap, that of G.U.N’s infectious and constantly building “Johnny Cage,” all Adair needed was a coked out Lamborghini, a single house and splotches of shots of G.U.N by his lonesome. G.U.N as an entity lives off of energy. He’s young enough to understand that pure energy and command of an audience wins people over regardless of what’s actually being said. He’s also keen on cadence and delivery, rapping atop a slate of programmed snares like he’s delivering elbows to everyone in a room. Mel of The Outfit, TX shows up with belly tatted and grill gleaming but in terms of other noticeable co-stars, “Johnny Cage” has none. Instead, the baby-faced individual with the dreads that barely inch past his chin flips between menace, reflective and hype all within a four minute runtime. Noisey published an article last month highlighting some of the best acts in Dallas, hailing it as one of the best music scenes few are actually paying attention to. They have a point, considering that the youth movement of Dallas involves of gumbo of what’s going on with the rest of the world. What spices that gumbo up? The drawls, inflections and actions of the likes of G.U.N., the IRAS and others. From Oak Cliff to Deep Ellum, everyone is bouncing their heads like bobble heads at The Ballpark in Arlington to “Johnny Cage”. Just watch it work.
