Yesterday hip-hop label Mello Music Group dropped a new video for Finding My Way (FREE download!) from Uptown XO‘s newest album Colour de Grey. Lazlo, the video’s director, offers this statement:
“The video for “Finding My Way” takes cues from the boom bap style production of the track and imagines Uptown XO as two sides of the same young man, coming of age during the mid-nineties in Washington D.C. During the first verse XO takes on the persona of a street minded hustler, spending time in alleyways, shady housing, and rooftops. While for the second verse he portrays the role of a government insider, working to enact change through the political system on Capitol Hill. These twin lifestyles echo the flip side of the same mindset, much like the dichotomy of the District itself.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Stay cool out there DC, both sides of you.
