Bru-C 'Playground' by Teeeezy C

Promonews - 1st June 2022

Bru-C teams up with Teeeezy C for a riveting doc-style video for Playground, paying tribute to the people in his hometown of Nottingham.

Shot on 16mm film, this video gets to the heart of what it means to be a Nottingham local, through Bru-C's heartfelt performance and a big cast of extras from his own neighbourhood - the Playground.

Teeeezy gets a real sense of the rapper's background, shooting everywhere from his local pub to the City Ground, home of Nottingham Forest - just promoted back to the English Premier League for the first time in 23 years.

The visual also unflinchingly explores the idea of the Playground being a metaphor for the lawlessness and brutality of inner city living. That includes a reverse play on police brutality and touching on undertones of poverty, racism and classism.

A viscerally raw and honest representation of Bru-C and his hometown.
