At this point in his tenure, you might think Michael Myerz would be running out of axes to grind. With three albums ready for release, and a slew of singles and videos in the works, the rapper’s well-publicized prolific streak remains very much intact, but if “Affirmative” is any indication, Myerz hasn’t lost his appetite for proving any would-be critics and haters wrong.“The song is honestly just about me fed up with a lot of shit (typical angsty me),” Myerz explains via email. “Well, I think that has always been the case haha, I don’t know… [I] honestly just wanted to rap over the beat and show off my ‘skills’ for anyone who thinks I can’t rap. I always feel like I have to prove something and then the other half of me is like ‘FUCK THAT,’ so with the last line ‘Ouch he’s an asshole, THAT IS AFFIRMATIVE’ is in a way me telling everyone either you are on this Myerz train or you are not, and if you are not then I have no time for you.”Rapping over a wavy, jazz-inflected beat produced by Florida electronic musician Sundrenched, Myerz certainly sounds charged-up as he fires off daggers for any one who seeks to dismiss him or question his talent and motivation. “Only can look tough when you’re with your clique / Ain’t really getting nothing done / Tax write-offs, cause you ain’t shit,” he spits at one point with a mix of both hostility and a kind of maniacal glee.Directed by longtime friend Devlin Bolton, the video highlights the track’s dark and stormy mood by framing Myerz in shadow and casting him in a dim bluish light. There’s nothing by the way of narrative—just the rapper cutting loose his frustrations in front of the camera. With a running time of just 1:46, the minimalist approach is enough to hold your attention, allowing the viewer to focus on the barrage of rhymes and lyrical barbs Myerz is hurtling out.
