So you’re a Calgary Rapper and you just recorded your first song that you know is a slapper… You know you’re going to need some visuals for this record. And not just any visuals, you want the best. So who do you call? Who are the trusted names for Music Videos in the YYC Hip-Hop Scene? Here are my picks:
DaKidT is a Rapper and Videographer reppin North Calgary. His production company USOMFILMS has been responsible for a lot of dope music videos to come out of the city this year. All his videos are characterized by their unique and high quality cinematography. Often utilizing aerial shots in his works, DaKidT’s videos immerse you in the setting and do a great job of bringing the artist’s vision to life. YYC Rappers he’s worked with include himself, Novkane and Mouraine. DaKidTs YouTube!
2. Eighty4 Visuals
Eighty4 Visuals is a Rapper, Photographer and Filmmaker based out of Calgary AB. He got into the craft just over a year ago and he’s already making a name for himself on the city’s Hip-Hop scene. Whether it be a cinematic wedding, documentary, music video, interview or a podcast, Eighty4s got you covered and brings quality each time. On the scene he’s been responsible for stand out music videos by Tony Toosick, BigShot Flick and most recently myself (Polo Sho). Eighty4 Visuals YouTube!
