Young Krow – Pouring Rain [Video]
Montreal, QC – Montreal-based artist Young Krow recently released the video for his song “Pouring Rain.” If you’re unfamiliar with Young Krow’s style, it’s a creative mash up between stage performance, hip-hop, and an undeniable cinematic flare. You’ll be sure to keep an eye out for this newcomer after watching the visuals for “Pouring Rain.”
I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for videos for that maximize on the use of crisp – yet simplistic – imagery. So between “Pouring Rain’s” soulful feel and clean presentation you’d be sleeping if you don’t give Krow’s video a look. New Montreal, check it out:
This video was edited by Borina Puss and directed by Krow himself. “Pouring Rain” doesn’t take long to establish Krow’s visionary style. The track is introduced with an audio sample of Merry and Pippin’s song at the Green Dragon (those are characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, by the way) entitled “Pouring Rain.”
From there, this record gets an uplifting boom bap beat that shows Krow is all about his business. He’s got a sly combination of voice control and lyric delivery. Young Krow drops funny and poignant lines like “Alcohol may be man’s worst enemy/ But the bible says you gotta love your enemies.” This young rapper also makes a great use of the old timey beat sample, originally produced by DJ Scratch for Q- Tip and Busta Rhymes.
