Video: TNT Tez – “Wok”
The Rapidly Up-and-Coming Alabama Emcee Hosts a Rowdy Pool Party in the Clip for this Jam for the Dog Days
Critical Praise for TNT Tez:
“TNT Tez has been unloading banger after banger for months now.” – Elevator
“After the erupting force of his famous single, “The Truth”, TNT Tez has been a blazing path of being one of the state’s outstanding artists.” – Modern Life Mag
“TNT Tez is another southern kid with a whole ton of potential.” – Fashionably-Early
Blitzing Birmingham with bracing bars, TNT Tez is ready to bust out of Bama to the national scene. Aggressively attacking a speaker-knocking instrumental from Internet Money, TNT Tez sips on “Wok” when he wants to turn up. With a title referring to a specific brand of cough syrup, “Wok” finds Tez adapting a triplet-based flow, rhyming in short declarative bursts over whirring synth and rumbling low-end. In the video, which has earned over 79k streams since its release last night, Tez and his crew go dumb to the beat’s massive bass, acting a fool by a swimming pool and trading in his AK for a supersoaker for a water fight.
Earning attention with a series of bite-sized bangers, Birmingham, AL’s TNT Tez has the confidence of a veteran. Armed with his firm belief that he’s the best rapper in his city, Tez gained notoriety when he shared “The Truth,” a vicious, yet playful diss track aimed at his Birmingham peer YBN Nahmir. On “The Truth,” Tez nimbly flipped Nahmir’s flow, one-upping him with feats of verbal dexterity and poking fun of Nahmir for his infatuation with video games (their beef has since subsided). In subsequent hits, Tez put his money where his mouth was, releasing infectious bangers like “Cropped Out,” which has over 700k streams on all platforms, and the ferocious “Coca Cola,” which recently surfaced in the Season 3 premiere of HBO’s Insecure. With only a small number of tracks released to the public, TNT Tez prepares for a massive 2018 as he shares more standout tracks.
