Cal Scruby straight up goes off in this music video! Shot by noworknocash and therealkleyk, this song is a modern funky boom bap-esque style. 'True Story,' gives me goosebumps and nostalgia of the early work of G-Eazy. As a videographer myself I would like to give this video a modest 7/10 review for its cinematic aspect. It’s not oversaturated with effect or contains flashy imagery, which allows the listener to engage more with the Cal Scruby’s lyricism, yet still having a visual open to interpretation.
We see Cal Scruby tell a story around a fire in this video in different settings. It sets the tone for him to be able to be personal. He even hints at suicidality and addiction in his lyrics. Which many in this current generation can relate to. This song is subtle, yet potent. You can’t help, but have respect for his style of storytelling and transparency. He’s not regulating buzz words, he’s speaking on real issues in his life and this makes his music so fucking catchy! If you're in need a 'True Story,' this is the banger for you!
