BLACK CHILD

MUSIC VIDEO 2019


Rising hip-hop star, Birdz today shares his highly anticipated Place Of Dreams EP, out via Bad Apples Music. To coincide with the seven-track release, the NT-raised, Melbourne-based rapper shares the latest single and video “Black Child” feat. Mojo Juju.
The visual accompaniment for “Black Child” features cameo appearances from well-loved artists Alice Skye, Kaiit and guest artist Mojo Juju, set within an elaborate, colourful and vast manor. The thought inducing lyrics pull you inwards with every verse, while the visuals redefine Euro-centric, Renaissance vignettes with bold, empowered First Nations People. The clip has recreated these images by highlighting the power and beauty of community – a new art that speaks to a hopeful future for the First Nations experience.
