King Reign – Killer [Video]

Tweet

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s King Reign just launched new visuals (via OkayPlayer) for his track entitled “Killer” off the forthcoming Sincere album. So we all know “Rob Ford” and “crack” have become associated buzz words, lately. But King Reign takes the Torontonian mayor scandal and works it into a whole other angle – this video is a dramatized depiction of what could have happened to King Reign if he had gotten his paws on that hot-ticket Ford crack video.

The video was directed by King Reign and Paulo Rubio for Reign Media. The production of the track was done by Gameboy, with scratches from DJ Grouch. Peep the video below.

Here’s the downlow: King Reign gets kidnapped by some dudes in his neighbourhood. Because he has this top-secret copy of Ford’s crack video. And then he hits us with his inner-most thoughts about political scandal, racial profiling, assumptions, and corruption.

While Rob Ford has become a figure of comedic value, King Reign takes a serious look at the issues that seem to have gotten brushed under the carpet. And then he hits it hard and brings it full-circle with one short line: “They think I’m a killer.” Those five words say it all; prejudicial assumptions based on appearance.

This video was produced in co-operation with MuchFACT, A Foundation To Assist Canadian Talent, Supported by Much and M3, Divisions of Bell Media Inc. For more information, visit kingreign.com. And keep it locked on the release of Sincere in June 2014.
