[Video] Giftz: “Game of Chess” (Feat. Boldy James)

Chicago’s own Giftz got people talking in the middle of last year with his mixtape project, Position of Power, which established him as an artist to know in the increasingly competitive Chicago scene as he emerged as a storyteller capable of reporting back on and framing the things he saw around him everyday growing up in the city’s rough areas. Just before the weekend, Giftz took fans there with Detroit MC Boldy James for the visual to his song “Game of Chess” off Position of Power. It’s a seminal street banger that features the pair traversing the dark and hallowed-out streets of Detroit, which only serves to add to the overall demeanor of the track. Check out the latest from Giftz, streaming below.
