Dre Island drops M16 video
Recording artiste Dre Island, recently released the music video for his 'M16' single to positive reviews.
The video was directed by Steezy of RD Studios and filmed at the old theatre in Harbour View.
M16 is available in all major online stores. The project was distributed by 21st Hapilos Digital and is already receiving attention overseas.
Dre Island said the song's title should not be taken literal. It is a metaphor which compares his message and lyrical ability to the potency, power and impact of an M16 rifle.
"I use creativity and serious play on words to ring the alarm, thereby calling out the champions and the youths to wise up and dismantle the existing system that has them under pressure and suffering. In the process, I inspire the youths to realise their true potential," he said.
The conscious reggae artiste, recently named by Mass Appeal magazine as one of reggae's most promising acts, will soon release his debut EP, Now I Rise.
