Premiere: Mouraine reunites with brothers Namso & Moto for “Shutdown”
Alberta-based rapper Mouraine returns with the premiere of his latest video, “Shutdown.”
“Shutdown” features Namso and Moto, who are actually Mouraine’s younger blood brothers. The Sudanese-Canadian trio had a group back in the day called The Overachievers T.O.A. but hadn’t recorded together since 2012.
“This song song means a lot to me for many obvious reasons,” Mouraine wrote on Instagram.
“This will be the first time in 9 plus years since that me and my brothers collaborated in one song. It’s crazy to believe because we were very active back in our youth days. We had a group called The Overachievers T.O.A I truly believe if you didn’t know me since then it’s hard to say you really know me. As TOA we went on to accomplish many things such as winning the youth accomplishment award, doing over 100 shows in less than a year, and opening up for some of our role models. Here are some throwback videos of our come up. There’s more that I can’t wait to put out on a documentary or something.”
“The song represents and speaks as an anthem to represent the hardships we go through coming and being from a place that is so cold yet we have to get up and grinding everyday regardless of the weather out here because we have families to feed.”
The newly released video for “Shutdown” was directed by Yonah Chuang, who was responsible for Mouraine’s “Open Letter to America” video which we featured in June.
