Fool's Gold producer Nick Hook and Lewisham man of the moment Novelist combine on "Can't Tell Me Nothing" to lethal effect, with all the typical intensity you'd expect from two of the liveliest heads in their respective scenes. The video sees Novelist in agitated mood—adamantly stating his mindset isn't shifting for anyone. Nick Hook too was left with a similar impression upon meeting Nov, telling The Fader, "It was crazy to see a person that's 19 years old without any sort of creative fear."
The blistering link up came about when Novelist flew stateside to New York City where, besides taking creative inspiration from some Picasso paintings in MoMA, he also locked in some studio hours with Hook—who has been steadily creating some of the most energetic dance music in the scene at the moment with the likes of Young Thug, A$AP Rocky and Matrixxman. The results are devastating; a pulsating two-and-a-half minute tirade of vexed vocals and unrelenting beats that leaves you craving for more of the same energy from the pair.
