Rapper Malachite debuts first official video
Canada based, Zambian rapper , Malachite , debuted his first official video for the song “Left Back” , off his mixtape “Starting IX” .
In a recent interview he had this to say:
What is the concept behind the video
MALACHITE: The concept is about aspects of my life that I am leaving behind while moving forward making my dream a reality. I wanted to translate the same things I was saying in the song into the visual. You will notice things like being broke, bad relationships, stress and more in the story line.
How did you feel making your first professional video ?
MALACHITE: Pure bliss. Sometimes its hard to come up with the right words to describe how it feels to reach this level. This is certainly one of the happiest and proudest moments in my life. Confidence in my music & career continues to grow and I am sure people can see how serious I am about this. There is no better feeling than doing what you love.
The video has just been out for a few days ,how is the response so far .
MALACHITE: The response has been amazing. After one day we had 1,766 views on YouTube, and after a few hours on WorldstarHipHop we had 9,424 views. Huge milestone in my life. People are loving it.
You recently met rapper Kid Ink ,known for his hit single “show me” . How did that come about and what did you discuss
MALACHITE: I’m so thankful to God to have all these great things happen for me and my career all at once. Meeting Kid Ink was a huge blessing. He had a show in Toronto that I attended, and my engineer , Mateo Palmisano ,who worked on “The Starting XI” originals had the opportunity to interview him so I joined him on that.
He spoke about what he is doing right now and how he came up. A really amazing artist with one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. Truly a pleasure to have met him and hopefully in future we can do a collaboration.
