Confz – What’s the Point (Prod. Canis Major) [Video]

Boissevain, MB – East London, UK rapper, Confz, just released new visuals for a track he did over a beat by our very own small-town 17-year-old Manitoba producer, Canis Major. The track is called “What’s the Point.”

So let me get to the point: the video was directed by Oliver Whitehouse. And it’s deep. For the first half of the video, we’re watching Confz get dressed as he alternates his verses with this heavy “What’s the point of living?” hook. And then he picks up a shovel and goes for a stroll. And you’re probably all like, “Yo. Why is Confz going for a walk with a shovel? That’s… different.” And then he starts digging a hole. And by the end of the video, you realize that Confz has just built up the entire video to this climax; the climax of him digging his own grave. And then he lies down in it. And my heart breaks.

Confz - What's the Point (Prod. Canis Major) [Video] -

It’s a visual interpretation of the struggle to live a life with purpose; as opposed to living a life in which you royally screw yourself over. You know- when you find that you’re digging yourself into a messy situation. What’s the point of that? There is no point to it. You may as well grab a shovel and help the homie Confz dig that grave.
