Los Poetas – Los Poetas (Dir. Alex Narvaez) [Video]

Toronto, ONLos Poetas team up with longtime HipHopCanada affiliate, director Alex Narvaez, for the slick revolution-inspired visuals to their self-titled single. The video, serving as the first single to the group’s debut album dropping January 2015, stars Luis “Louwop” Segura, Martin “Che Uno” Cura, Marcel Jaramillo, Brian Quintero, Rene Jesus Escobar, Christopher Meneses Sanchez, Andrew Galicia, Cayden Segura, Oscar Campos, and Victoria Walton. It was written by Narvaez and Campos.

“Los Poetas” depicts military oppression and an assault on freedoms often taken for granted… speech, thought and general liberty. Louwop and Che Uno are approached by soldiers as they mind their own business, poetry in hand. The journal is confiscated and the outnumbered Los Poetas are matched through the woods by soldiers as locals watch on. A defiant young boy brings the detained MCs water and is soon discovered by the soldiers. But the words in the book connect with the commanding officer and seems to resonate with his overall view of things. The group is released and open their book to a page with a clear message:

Everyone is responsible for resisting oppression and injustice for a better world.

At least, that’s what I got without being able to fully appreciate the lyrics (it’s mostly in Spanish). But regardless of the language barrier, the flows are undeniable and the Vago-produced track bangs hard! Check out the video after the jump.
