For all of the putting on for his city through song and braggadocio, it’s only been within the last few years that fans have truly seen Drake champion Toronto. Despite the heaps of love he’s given Houston, his involvement with his hometown has had a profound effect on the city’s culture (most visibly with the Raptors).
That being said, Drizzy’s newest project comes in the form of the Karim Huu Do-directed short film titled “Jungle”: a 14-minute video that chronicles the rapper’s rise to the top, while paying homage to the people of what he’s christened as ‘The Six’. Like fans have grown accustomed to, the visual projects a serious, moody atmosphere, as Drake’s brooding takes precedent over his sense of camaraderie and accomplishment.
Snippets of new music can be heard throughout, presumably produced by Noah “40” Shebib, the film’s composer and Drake’s right hand. The video’s release date might be the biggest indication that we’re getting that new mixtape from the OVO leader very soon, but we’ll have to wait and see. (via P&P)
