Holdin’ Up The Wall
Denizen Kane speaks for himself. No amount of pyrotechnics, smoke machines, or bling bling could compete with the force of his flow and power of his presence. To me, Denizen Kane represents hip hop stripped down to its essence without the aid of props or gimmicks. In the following video for his track “Holdin’ Up the Wall” Denizen Kane spits sitting down on the street in a simple and consistent shot that brings the focus to the content of his words. Directed by one of the founders of Youth Speaks, Jason Mateo, this video is the culmination of a thoughtful and labor intensive process and collaboration among friends and mutually creative and inspired artists. I have had the pleasure of building with both Denizen Kane and Jason Mateo since moving to the Bay Area and I hope you will all take the time to watch this video and support this project by continuing to spread the word and share the link. The video got accepted to be in an Asian American Media competition. Views = Votes. If they win, then the video will tour with the Asian American Film Festival.
