[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After S1 broke down Game's "Blood Diamonds" track, rap newcomer Kid Named Breezy spills the goods on his "Whoa Dere" music video.]
With the "Whoa Dere" music video, I had so many concepts going into it. I think I was like, "Let's just finally do something." Literally, it's just me and what I am.
A lot of those scenes are from my house. The basketball court, the hallway scene as well as what's outside, that's all my house. My idea of a big production, we couldn't do it at the time. I think this video is simple but very artistic because we had different lighting.
I just wanted to make it something very simple but very artistic and complex at the same time. That last scene with me in that "Fresh Prince"-looking chair, we actually went out to this club that they opened up out here in Washington, D.C., and I just love the way it was set-up.
So we set up cameras and ligting and just got it done. It was beautiful.
We actually took two days to film. I think it was really a product of what my team put together. We definitely planned it accordingly.
Actually, there's one scene. I was coming back from New York to do the rest of the video and we didn't even call anybody or do anything, so I just posted on Twitter, "I'm over here shooting my video at such-and-such club, I need y'all there. Get there, ASAP."
By the time I got there, there was about 20 different females. It was crazy.
Thanks to a chance meeting between his father and industry veteran , Suave House Records founder Tony Draper, Breezy had the opportunity to have his music heard by Draper who immediately recognized the 'it' factor as well as the vision in Breezy and signed on to manage the young rapper. His debut mixtape, Snap Back With a Life Full, includes features by Pusha T and Black Cobain.
