Watch: “Witcha,” Visto’s Tale of Betrayal

If his lyrics are to be believed, Visto needs some new friends. On "Witcha,"  a standout track from last summer's Before Euphoria, the local rapper/singer (recall last year's XX-rated "How That Pxssy Taste") spins a lurid tale of deception.

The driver opens the rear passenger door, and the rapper steps out in paisley-print board shorts, brown boots, and a bow tie. His wardrobe doesn't match his ride. There’s a [...]
