K Koke ft Rita Ora 'Lay Down Your Weapons' by Courtney PhillipsK Koke ft Rita Ora 'Lay Down Your Weapons' by Courtney Phillips2Courtney Phillips showcases his skill for narrative form with the delivery of his promo for UK MC K Koke - featuring an appearance from the UK's fastest rising star, Rita Ora. 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.
