Derby’s Eyez has dropped a new video for the high-spirited ‘Down Like Dat’. Produced by the talented EVA808, the video starts off in 1960s Britain (with Eyez, somewhat randomly, wearing a slick chocolate suit) before we snap into 2017 Derby, tracksuits and all. The intro is sampled from an opening scene of 1960s show ‘Ironside’, which was also utilised by Madlib for MF Doom’s ‘ALL CAPS’
It’s an odd video, to be fair, with snakes and ice-cream vans involved. I’m thinking director Joe O’brien may have been drunk when he created the video concept. Regardless, once again Eyez demonstrates his lyrical dexterity, and that he is an emcee with a whole load of sauce.
