Melbourne’s Benny Sinclair is an artist on the rise for 2020. His glorious new video for “Jungle” which is taken from his new release, “Assumptions,” is beyond dope from start to finish. His unique and visionary brand of Hip Hop gives him a headstart as we jump into the New Year and Sinclair shows no signs of slowing down. We had the absolute honor of sitting down with Benny Sinclair as he chats about his latest masterpiece.
Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically? –
Jungle Is my own modern day version of ‘Concrete Jungle’ by one of my great inspirations ‘Bob Marley’. The lyrics express my personal frustrations & anxieties of modern day urban living. (Track Produced by ALFRD, cuts by Dj Rellik, mixed by Jase Beathedz & mastered by Dave Walker). I felt this track would be good to visualize as it allowed me to be creative. I felt we achieved this through a good contrast of tougher/gangster rapper type scenes & quirky humorous scenes such as rapping to a monkey puppet & dancing around with a lady who is suppose to represent my lawyer. The video was filmed & edited by Jeff Valledor who I have worked with on several projects. Jeff is a creative genius & is able to bring my music to life!
What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)?
I had just come out of some very tough times in my personal life, which I touch on in my lyrics. I had at times felt some of my darkest days, my music has been my escape, & through this video I feel I have been able to visualize a small chapter of this time of my life to my audience. I feel this video captures my story!
