This video is real ill. And he co-directed it himself…impressive!
“When it comes to my music, videos, and other artistic endeavors, I try to push the envelope. I don’t conform to what is expected. I want each song, each video, each piece of art to be it’s own entity. The “Flattery” song and video are a reflection of that. I love this song because it’s a true story from my life, and I think it’s a good example of who I am as an artist. It’s hard to label genre-wise, and I like that. The video for it just came to me one day after really listening to the lyrics. I’ve always fantasized about being James Bond—who hasn’t?—so it felt natural for me to incorporate and explore that vision in my music videos, starting with “New York Times” and continuing with “Flattery.” Maybe my character is the American son Bond never knew he had? Haha…We shot the video on virtually no budget and utilized friends for actors. Everyone involved acted as a producer to help facilitate the video. I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out. A big thank you to everyone involved.” – D-WHY
