Derek Wise buries the snakes and haters in this new video for “Jamal”
Toronto, ON – Earlier this week XO affiliate Derek Wise returned from his brief hiatus for the release of this new RJ Sanchez directed video for “Jamal”. “Jamal” was produced by Yungshrimp Tempura and Stretch and appears as the opening track on the January released Inglorious album.
One of the hardest songs off Inglorious, “Jamal” set the tone of the album from jump. Derek Wise is the voice of Canada’s dark, hidden underbelly. He’s a lyrical slumlord and reigning king of the trap. And within two lines of his album, he manages to establish that A) he’s probably had sexual relations with your girl and B) drugs!!!!: “I wash the drugs with the strainer/ I f**ked your bitch so don’t blame her/ No I don’t sell to no strangers/ Shoot up the club for my paper/ I got her off of the gram/ F**ked me then blessed all my mans/ Now she dose off of the xans.”
The “Jamal” visual is a cinematic journey about burying, and laying to rest the negativity, haters, and snakes in Derek’s life. The video starts in the thick of the forest as it switches between face-on shots of Derek rapping for the camera, and shots of Derek hacking away at the trees with a hatchet. Then we’re taken away from the forest and into a desert landscape for the burial.
