Her name may not be a household one just yet — but TT The Artist has been here this whole time as our actual queen of Hip hop. Though others have tried to claim the crown, one listen to her newest release and one glance at the video for “Payroll” (ft. Starrz) will have you wondering why we ever even questioned her royalty.

Baltimore club is a brash and raucous style of dance music that originated in the city of its name about three decades ago. In 2018, the many of the actual clubs that nurtured the music have shut down, and the genre’s moment in the national spotlight is behind it, but the people who keep it alive are still going. “There’s no real space that incubates this genre,” says standout producer TT the Artist in a new short Baltimore club documentary that’s premiering on Spin today. “When there were no more outlets,” adds a club promoter who goes by Uneek, “We created the outlet.”

oday, the official music video for “Make it Clap” by Monikkr and Beat Kitty featuring TT The Artist, has been released to the public. The video was directed by Bridget Moriarty of the collective production company called The Good People of NYC, produced by Anthony Fonseca & Amanda Bociek of NYC Bass Collective and shot by DP Blaine Dunkley. This dark yet seductive video compliments the booty bass track in such a way that leaves the viewer feeling like they just awoke from a trippy nightmare.
The video begins with the squad gathering around TT in an eerie basement for a ouija board séance that quickly turns into one of the members becoming possessed by a sexy, glow in the dark Aztec warrior accompanied by a crew of alluring dancers. From there, it can’t help but turn into a blacklight, booty-clapping party. Choreographer Robert McBay perfectly captures the essence of the video with his perfected dance moves.
The amount of hard work, energy, and talent that was put into producing this was incredible. It truly goes to show what can be done with little to no budget and a handful of badass artists willing to create something together in the name of fun and love,” Beat Kitty.
