Coming straight from single ‘100,000,000’ which dropped earlier this month, BERWYN is back with a more personal number ‘I’d Rather Die Than Be Deported’, accompanied with another LOOSE-directed video that ties into his previous visual by featuring the same car.
As he dangles from the passenger side window on the Dartford Crossing, the Romford-based rapper, singer and songwriter shows off his effortless versatility by merging a trap style with lo-fi rap throughout the single as he vividly documents the journey he took to get to where he is today. Although the title of the song had us wondering if he actually would die than be deported, BERWYN stated that the track instead explores the theme of solitude, alongside talking about moments and situations that he’s found himself in. He commented;
With the director stating that they wanted to create something that subverts intimacy and the vulnerability of BERWYN’s words, they also wanted to show the fearlessness and ego that you would expect from a rapper, creating a contrast.
Said to be one of the most prestigious talents of 2021, BERWYN has risen to the top of the ‘one to watch’ lists. With the talent to provide listeners a delicate insight into an abrasive and hyper-masculine world, he utilises soul, rap and contemporary electronic styles to fortify his sound.
