The track was produced by Norwegian group Loopholes, and the video was directed by Louis himself, an accomplished director in his own right (see more). The son of Yoruba drummer Ayo Adeyemi (site), Louis is working on HipHop Lives International, a forthcoming series with the goal of giving international artists a platform to share their stories. Louis has penned songs for a number of well-known artists and is part of writing/production crew ZJ30, as well as the leading member of alternative rock/hip-hop/fusion band South Banks, whose “Superwoman” single rode’s Independent Music Charts for eight weeks straight (listen). Louis’ previous solo full-lengths include Ahead of My Time (listen), Running Late (listen) and Checkmate (listen). Louis was on DJ Quik’s Book of David Tour alongside Suga Free, the Generation West Pac 2012 Tour and has performed in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Tokyo. “I paint real life pictures and attempt to express why I am who I am,” Louis says about the single. “My reality was intense from a young age. I went through a lot and I got to see things from an angle many of my peers never checked. Now I must share this information because of the perspective I have.” International Slap is out now on Generation West.
