Drega – All I Know [Video] #Premiere
Brampton, ON – HipHopCanada brings you the premiere of the latest visual release from producer/MC, Drega. “All I Know” was directed by Henjo Films’ Henry Shephard and Joanie Fong while the song was co-produced by Drega and AR + Z. The video is Drega’s take on being ‘a brown kid growing up in Brampton,’ and the xenophobia he experienced, but he flipped it in a way to basically appeal to anyone feeling like they don’t belong; the outsider or social outcast. He also criticizes pop singer Lorde, bluntly stating, “Fuck what that Lorde say, she ain’t never been no poor and black.” Drega had this to say about the inspiration behind the release:
“I wrote this song from the perspective of the brown kid growing up in Brampton in response to the xenophobe who wonders why we stick to ourselves and why we don’t just become more like them. But rather then make it an “us vs them” thing as is so often the case in the media, I made the lyrics apply to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.”
While Henjo Films had this to say on their own site: “It was great having the opportunity to use our creative juices in a new way by producing this music video with a message – we couldn’t have picked a better artist to work with!”
