David Knight - 22nd Jan 2014

Harvey Eaton's video for Dead Players' Badman focusses squarely on Dabbla, a charismatic rapper with the super-fast flow. Harvey throws in an Ancient Egyptian theme for good measure: big snakes, sharp swords, and a sarcophagus. But this is all about the rather brilliant Dabbla... 

Harvey Eaton:

"We wanted to show Dabbla's high paced flow, strong energy, and cheeky chappy persona on screen. We dressed him up as a mummy, gave him a sword, and he was happy. A snake tried to bite him but he was having none of it."
