Deffine – Shut Up [Video]

Edmonton, AB – Edmonton MC Deffine just dropped visuals for his track “Shut Up” off his forthcoming New Definition project. So we start off with him looking all bummed out. Looks like the dude has writer’s block. And then his notepad starts talking to him. And then (by the mastery of our media guru, Sonik), a cartoon embodiment of Deffine appears on said notepad and starts spitting bars at writer’s-blocked Deffine.

So he gets a bit sketched out. Because his notepad is rapping at him. You feel me? That ish isn’t normal. But cartoon Deffine has some pretty hungry bars. He’s holding his ground as a YEG MC. Me thinks this is why it’s called “Shut Up.” Because Deffine wants us to take the time to listen to what he has to say. And just like that, the song’s written itself. Writer’s block, solved. Thanks, cartoon notepad embodiment of Deffine. The video was directed by Sonik, and the track was produced by Dunna. Check it out below.
