After shutting it down at our last Clash Live event at Ace Hotel, South London rapper Renz returns with new video ‘Big Amounts’.
The Jay Prince-assisted track is the opener of his latest mixtape ‘Lifestyle’ and sets the bar high for the rest of the nine track release - which also boasts appearances from Kojey Radical, Bonkaz and Inch of Section Boyz.
The collaboration came together organically during a conversation that would set the scene for the mixtape. “Working with Jay was easy man,” says Renz. “We sat down and had a conversation about music and what I was trying to achieve on ‘Lifestyle'. He just understood me completely from the jump so we just vibed and ‘Big Amounts’ is the result of that.”
“The song just came from catching a vibe,” agrees Jay. “It was easy knowing Renz trusted me to do my thing when I was producing the song.”
The accompanying visual comes courtesy of photographer Filmawi, and aims to combine his distinct portraiture style with live performance. “I wanted to keep a certain rawness so decided to shoot it in a broken down warehouse,” he explains. “Using the photography backdrop helped put a spotlight on the artist to express themselves.”
Check out the video above, and stream ‘Lifestyle’ on your preferred digital music service.
