LD bANKO runs it in his new video for “8 Miles (Shots For Everyone)”

Brampton, ON – Brampton newcomer and Made2Eat artist LD bANKO just released a brand new video for his 2016 released single “8 Miles (Shots For Everyone)”. The song is a nod to the cult classic film 8 Mile, and serves as shots fired at anyone who ever slept on or hated on the underdog.

For this video LD took a low-budget, DIY approach by filming himself literally out on an 8 Mile run. LD’s approach for the visuals so perfectly coincides with the DIY commentary of the track. You can’t always rely on people to be there when you need them, so you’ve got to pave your own way. That’s exactly what LD did with the video. He directed and filmed his own video with basically no budget.

Brampton newcomer LD bANKO breaks down his new track

Here’s what LD bANKO had to say about this video: “The concept behind this video is that I’m running throughout the whole video; to play off the fact that the track is called “8 Miles” and that I’m running the game. This idea stemmed off of the Dreamville documentary made by J. Cole, which inspired me to get up and shoot this video the same day myself… It was now or never. So I got up, got out, and got it done. For some people it may be an ordinary video but this video to me had a lot of thought put into it. From the shots, the clips, the editing, the scenes… perfectly executed in my books! The vision is there. Now imagine when I have a full paid video shoot with directors… I cant wait for the day!”
