︎︎︎Record Players: Golden Wings

Conceptual Music Video (2019)


Through a quest to obtain a James Brown record, RECORD PLAYERS: GOLDEN WINGS tells the story of DJ Kool Herc, a.k.a. the Father of Hip Hop. Exhibited is a modern day narrative of Kool Herc: his early years in Jamaica, his young adulthood in the Bronx, and his retirement years working a record shop. 
From vinyl records, rhythmic dancehall to patois (represented by Jamaican poet Miss Lou), this music video maps the sometimes overlooked roots of Hip Hop culture.
