Dot Demo’s “Roberto Clemente” Puts The Bass In The Old Ballgame (Video)
Although the late, great Roberto Clemente was no New York Yankee, Bronx MC Dot Demo takes it to a neighborhood park in the new video for his bass-heavy, trap-inspired song titled after the legendary baseball player and humanitarian.
Ball bat in hand, one of Ambrosia For Heads’s “Ready or Not” alums delivers bars about “servin’ base [like] Roberto Clemente.” The video is slightly more ambiguous than his rhymes, however, only hinting at the meaning behind the baseball metaphor subtly—with a stove in the middle of the field. The visual has motion, as Dot delivers his rhymes with a lot of style in the booth, and in the performance. This is an MC looking to not only get on base, but bring some attention home.
“Roberto Clemente” is the latest video off Dot’s Outer Body Experience LP, which was released in September. He showcases a variety of styles on the album, and uses beats from a diverse range of producers—including one from The Alchemist.
