Toronto rapper, Mazzi 500 takes a nostalgic look at his past in debut music video, “Swervin” in anticipation of his upcoming project, The Seizure, dropping July 16, 2018.
“Swervin,” directed by Telesca, represents more than its grooving beat and catchy hook. For Mazzi 500, it is a reflection on a simpler time in his past. A time he says many hip-hop enthusiasts across all generations can relate to. A time where youthful arrogance and ambition fueled the hustle and a pursuit of fame and wealth. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Rolling through the streets of Toronto in a BMW 7-series, Mazzi 500, often seen hanging out the side of the window, perfectly embodies his no fucks given attitude from his youth. “Swervin” comes straight from the streets and features a “mild, aggressive, bass heavy” beat that perfectly accompanies the days spent just “cruising your car,” says Mazzi 500.
The video is all “about speaking my truth,” says Mazzi 500. It is raw and with its sobering use of neutral color and urban imagery, creates an honest representation of youth life and culture in hip-hop.
When asked about the music video Mazzi 500 says, “This song to me represents the days when we didn’t give a fuck. Sub-textually speaking of drinking and driving. Filled with arrogance a lust for fast money. We were relentless. We had an abundance of passion, aggression and we did what we wanted without thinking of the consequence.”
