“Just Forfeit” – D.O. Gibson feat Arabesque, G. Stokes, Slakah the Beatchild

Directed by Marc Andre Debruyne

This was the first video I shot with a grant.

I received the grant 10 years ago right around this time of year.

I found out on a Saturday morning after doing a show the night before. I had been in Hamilton at MacMaster and just before I went on, the CD wouldn’t play. But they had already introduced me. So I went out and did what I had to do. Kicked a freestyle, won the crowd over and by the time the CD worked, I was able to do one song and call it a night. I drove back in a snow storm. Wasn’t paid. Kinda frustrated, but glad it worked out.

So finding out we got the video, I was hype. I had been turned down at least twelve times before this. As a musician, there are always moments like these that help validate the dream. Was a blessing to shoot this with so many friends and fam in the video.

Today I’m heading to a video shoot for my latest single. I’m hype. It never gets old…

Shoutout to The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (FACTOR) for supporting the forthcoming video for “Follow Me”
