Jay Portal just released the video for his DBLCRSS produced “Rockstar” anthem

Hamilton, ON – Earlier this week Jay Portal finally released the accompanying video for his DBLCRSS produced “Rockstar” anthem.

“Rockstar” came out back in June as a summer banger for all the youth in revolt who’ve got big dreams of coming out on top. Jay’s uncle used to be a singer in a Led Zeppelin cover band so Jay came up witnessing a glamourized look at the “rockstar” lifestyle. He’s wanted to be a part of it ever since, and to be able to live with zero f**ks given.

The video itself was shot by Kochanka Visuals, and features a grungy low-key aesthetic. Jay’s not gassed up on himself so he knows he’s not even close to rockstar status. There are no telly parties or bottles popping in this video; mostly just shots of Jay squatting on the concrete, smashing guitars, and rapping in alleyways. Which is rockstar AF. Because “rockstar” status is actually just a mindset. That’s what separates the rockstars from the guys in rock bands.
