Dave Mac celebrates Spotify plaque at Harley G’s with new video for “Leader”
Ontario-based rapper and songwriter Dave Mac returns with new visuals for his song “Leader.”
The video was shot by Kyle McNeil of True Aspect Media during a meet and greet at Harley G’s clothing store in Oshawa. Harley G’s hosted the event to celebrate Mac’s recent Spotify award for reaching the #1 position on the Spotify Hip-Hop/Rap Albums in Canada chart with his project, Anything.
We asked Mac about his connection to Harley G, who has ties to artists like MGK, Merkules, and various other members of the scene:
“My dad, who passed in 1997, was a musician and friends with Harley’s dad, and they both liked motorcycles. I reached out to Harley and told him who I was, and then told him I wanted to shoot a video at his store because it would be a good look for both of us.”
The 14-track Anything was the first of two projects released by Mac in 2019, and precedes his latest album, Problems, which was released in October. Problems is Mac’s fifth project since dropping his debut, Turn My Back, back in 2015.
Mac has teamed up with Canadian super producer Young Aspect who recently went Gold in Canada for production on Madchild’s debut solo album, Dope Sick. Expect lots of new music from the duo coming soon.
