Today, hip-hop pioneer and producer DJ Premier and Brooklyn MC Casanova reveal their music video for newest single “WUT U SAID?” directed by legendary hip-hop photographer Daniel Hastings. Best described as a classic rap record throwback to NY in the 90s, the single just dropped July 20th via Payday Records with a premiere on Complex.
“I went back to my 90’s style of shooting, edgy and raw,” said Hastings. “The fans are going to go nuts when they see this video because I captured the soul of the song and put it into a visual composition, it has that Danny Hastings signature all over.”
Famed photographer Hastings to step back into the creative spotlight reigniting the vision of the way hip-hop was portrayed in the 90s as seen in the video. Having been a longtime collaborator with Premier and Payday, this visual is seen as a return to Payday’s roots, bringing back into the fold the iconic 1990s street and gritty feel.
