Shot over two days on a prison set at Wimbledon Studios, Lay Down Your Weapons, beautifully lit and shot by Ben Todd, follows a young incarnation of the rapper as he deals with the pressures of a stint inside.
Already the subject of an early feature on the Guardian music blog, the promo deals less with the glamourization of life in jail but a study of a young person’s experience within the prison system.
