Flagpole Premieres: Blacknerdninja, ‘Yea Right’ Video

One of the most dynamic performers in Athens’ hip hop scene, Eugene Willis, aka Blacknerdninja, is rightly lauded for his live show. But if “Yea Right,” the first single from Willis’ upcoming album, is any indication, he’s stepping his game up in the recording department, too.

Today we’re excited to premiere the video for “Yea Right,” which you can watch below: 

Says Willis: 

“Yea Right” is one of the first singles and visuals from my upcoming projects entitled #TheUncannyBlacknerdninja and #RobotsMonkeysandMicrophones. This song is an independent artist’s anthem! This video was filmed and edited by Alex Pfannkuche from RexxType productions. My project released date is set for June 1, and the listening party will be held at Hendershot’s Coffee Bar May 29 for all ages.
