Wasiu – Bout 02 Blow (Video)
Representing Haiti and Nigeria, the rapper Wasiu drops his new video Bout 02 Blow, over an unorthodox production from VXNYL. But you gotta love the beat though. New age and un-watered down from the normal sound we’re used to hearing.
The new video, directed by 5 Pound Media, features Wasiu flowing behind a Haitian flag, with his goons running rampant through the Montreal Metro System. Read more about this release below:
Shedding light on the issues of racism and media coverage of minorities in North America, Wasiu and his crew invade the Montreal underground and in an intense visual for “Bout 02 Blow.” In the video, which premiered via Noisey, Wasiu covers himself with a Haitian flag while laying down his forceful, clever rhymes over the harrowing beat by V X N Y L. “People were scared. They were staring. They were giving us attention. We had the power,” he explains. “Bout 02 Blow” is Wasiu’s latest track from his yet-to-be-titled debut album.
“When I say ‘Bout 02 Blow’ I’m talking about a couple things,” Wasiu explained to Noisey. “I’m about to blow up in the rap game, I’m about to explode in a blind fury because I’m not getting the props I deserve, and I’m about to blow, like a terrorist. And when I say terrorist I’m referring to the way media builds this fearful image of Blacks, Muslims, and minorities, and it gets fed into the minds of the masses. But what we as people don’t realize is that this also empowers us and we just have to realize what we possess.”
