D.O. – Still In It (Prod. Classified) [Video]
Toronto, ON – Rapper and Northstarr label head D.O. (short for ‘Defy the Odds’) presents the newly released music video for the single, “Still In It,” off his new album, Down Home.
“‘Still In It’ is the first track on the album, but it’s the last song that Classified and I worked on for the project,” says D.O.
“We were trying to think of the best way to start it off. Class was playing me about fifty beats. Nothing was clicking. Then he pulled up a rough loop, but only played it for a few seconds before moving on. Instantly I was like ‘Yo what was that?!’ It was really rough so he made the beat on the spot. While he was working on the beat, I was thinking of the lyrics and flow. Since it’s the intro on the album, I wasn’t concerned with a hook. I just wanted to go in. I spend a lot of time in Amsterdam, so I thought this one would be cool to shoot while I was over there. People that are familiar with the city will recognize the spots – Central Station and Dam Square. Two of the landmarks of the city.”
“Still In It” was directed by Duane Gibson and Preetam Sengupta while editing was handled by Illvibe.
