After hyping it up on Twitter for the past week, rising Baltimore rapper Starrz debuted his new video, as promised, late last night. The clip is for the more-serious "American Nightmare" track from last year's "Best Mixtape Ever" project.
"American Nightmare," which was produced by J. Oliver, finds Starrz is in storyteller mode, making this track immediately stand out from his well-received mixtape.
Starrz wrote on YouTube: "This Video is a Look in the Life of The Children in the world today. And shows its Never to late to change your ways. Be Triumphant Over the Struggle instead of Settling."

And yes, that's Starrz's daughter reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in the intro. Watch the video above. (Quick warning: It contains some explicit language.)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
