MeLo-X is one of New York City’s most coveted artists. Sure, MeLo’s name rings bells overseas, but the headquarters of his kingdom lies here in Gotham.

We just got wind of the first official visuals from MeLo-X‘s GOD: LoFi EP. Directed by The Martian Project, the video finds MeLo in East Flatbush, Brooklyn dining on delicious caribbean cuisine while sipping his favorite wine, Sweet Bitch. Just when things seem like regular night in Brooklyn, a goddess (Carley Beck) in a flowing white dress and a menacing black skully floats into to join MeLo’s enchanted evening.

Yet again, we have been found guilty being selfish with our spoils. We got our hands on this track from MeLo-X a few days ago, but between palancing to it on a Friday and getting jiggy with it over the weekend, we just didn’t find time to post it.
