After sharing the dark and reflective single, "Dirtnap," West Cost emcee Dirtbagjack is back with a set of visuals for his songs "Reason" and "Hawthorne." "Reason" has an upbeat and bright bouncy production courtesy of no1elsebutrico and sees the rapper questioning the realities of life and the stress that comes with being a black man in America. He seeks to find a true reason to go on amidst the madness but fortunately, music is his ultimate saving grace. On "Hawthorne" he teams up with producer Background who provides him a west-coast synth-laden punchy beat which he employs to muse on about his city of Hawthorne. He takes listeners deep in the trenches and reminds them that no matter how famous he gets, he will never forget where he came from.
The visuals for both songs were shot and directed by Creme Velo who created special aesthetics to distinguish both songs. "Reason" has a bright and sunny vibe that focuses solely on the rapper in performance mode as he reflects on life. While it was shot in the daytime, the other half of the song, "Hawthorne," was done at night to indicate a change in mood. On here, Dirtbagjack brings out his crew to rock with him in the dark and the director helps capture their unique energy and swag.
"Reason" and "Hawthorne" are both taken from his forthcoming DIRTNAP project.
