Rising MC Ezri Struggles Choosing Between Good & Evil in His New Video 'Be Right Back': Premiere
publish date: 2017-10-05
After displaying his acting chops on FOX's TV series Empire and the 2016 film The Land, Mass Appeal's budding MC, Ezri, is ready to re-focus on his first love: rap.
To win the hearts of hip-hop purists, Ezri unleashes his new video "be right back," which showcases his precociousness on the mic. "I'm afraid of losing my mama's support/ She's disappointed because I'm smoking marijuana for sport," he ruminates over the booming track. The stirring visual finds Ezri entrapped in some troublesome activities with his boys. While he desperately tries to decipher what's right and wrong, he ultimately follows his heart.
"As far as the story goes, I wanted to create an experience where the viewer felt like they were making the decisions in the situations portrayed in the video. I also wanted to paint the image of the reality that comes with growing up in impoverished areas," Ezri tells . "For those who can relate, it's the depiction of a daily battle to make certain choices in certain situations. For those who can't, it's an action movie where they can learn about shit that happens on 87th and Detroit."
