Enjoying his stay in Jamaica, Hip Hop artist Safaree decided to shoot a video for one of his favourite songs. The video, titled “StuntMan“, was directed by Jay Parpworth for Stunt Films and shot in NannyVille, Kingston. In the video we see SB walking through the community, interacting with the residents and makes it known why he’s “Stuntman“. Off his “It Is What It Is” Mixtape, SB has been receiving lots of love since his arrival and has been appearing at many events. If you’re new to his music, check out his mixtape.

Recently, Rapper J Cole visited Jamaica to shoot a music video, and of course enjoy the Island. Little did some of us know that he was also a part of a short film done by BBGun Films and Swiss Luxury brand, Bally. Directed by Maxim Bohichik, we see scenes where Cole visited the Bob Marley Museum, hanging out at Strawberry Hill, and hiking in the Blue Mountains. Featuring some new Bally gear, we also hear J Cole’s Note To Self” and “Love Yourz“. Pretty dope video, and even better that it was shot here.
