London-born visionary Ragz Originale has delivered the official video for ‘Proof Read’, a firm fan’s favourite from his debut album ‘Nature’.
Directed by directing duo Stuupid, the visual features appearances from Ragz alongside fellow Mini Kingz members Oscar #Worldpeace, BenjiFlow and Cartae. Adding to the infectious and upbeat production, the video also features a range of dancers who perform cleverly choreographed moves to the track.
Speaking on ‘Proof Read’ and the accompanying video, Ragz explains: “Proof Read was definitely one of the wild cards from that album. I saw how people were responding to it live, online and I just had to follow through. I sent my thoughts over to Stuupid who directed it and they really helped bring that raw energy to life. Our idea is for this video to represent, and most importantly empower, females. The bassline never fails!”
A dynamic and eclectic artist capable of turning his hand to any sound, Ragz Originale’s unique blend of genres, including hip-hop, R&B, and electronic music, has caused a huge surge in popularity for the Ivor Novello nominee in the past year.
Responsible for previous production and co-writing duties on Skepta’s certified gold album Konnichiwa – with credits on ‘Shutdown’ and ‘Text Me Back’ - Ragz has quickly developed a reputation as an innovative and creative producer, receiving a wealth of support from the likes of Benji B, Charlie Sloth, Ras Kwame and Julie Adenuga.
Beginning his career in 2013, recording his own music via his bedroom studio, the Londoner was influenced by the grime scene as a youngster, and soon became the mastermind behind the culture-shifting ‘Shutdown’, a global smash which achieved gold certification in the UK.
With an upcoming joint EP project with Oscar #Worldpeace, Ragz Originale continues his journey into 2019 and beyond, cementing his reputation as one of the most vibrant talents on the scene.
