BELGIAN VIDEOS TO BE HERE FOR: DARRELL COLE & COELY
2017 has already proven to be a great year for Belgian hip hop with artists like Hamza and Damso -whose rise in particular seems unstoppable with his video for “N.J. Respect R” being on the verge of 10 million (!) views as we speak- busting through the noise.
Two of our fellow compatriots just dropped new visuals, the first one being Darrell Cole giving us the beautiful and vulnerable “BOATS.”, which stands for “Based On A True Story”.
The video is gorgeously directed and animated by Remy m. Ndow and tells the story about young Darrell’s chaotic and brave journey from Sierra Leone to Antwerp.
Watch and subsequently count your blessings.
The second drop is from that other Antwerp gem Coely, who let “A Polaroid Story” ‘s Elisabeth Ouni earn her first full director’s credit on the video for her ode to her Mama called “Celebrate”, a song we’ve seen Coely perform a couple of weeks ago at our friend’s Dalilla Hermans’ book launch.
