Back in October, D Double E unveiled his sophomore studio album D.O.N. (Double or Nothing), the first official follow-up to his 2011 debut Jackuum! The project saw 12 tracks and additional features from Giggs, Ms Banks, Ghetts, Jme, and more. In a recent interview with Esquire, the grime legend explained the meaning behind the new project:
“This album is a bit more of me, the real me… I’ve been stereotyped as an artist. People have always thought I’m this guy but I’m really nicer than what people think. … I’ve been a part of all these genres and that’s part of my story.”
“It’s a bittersweet symphony, they say, “An eye for an eye,” you die by the sword, hah, you can’t look for no sympathy, I get high so I can ease the pain, but still I could never touch yay like Kimberly/
I got rich and still I kept my dignity, all the old Gs fallin’ off, see Skeppy and D Double, that’s who they wish to be…/”
The accompanying visual is directed by Nicki “SlimTing” Walker and Femi Oyeniran, and starts with the apparent aftermath of a heist. The clip then switches to D Double E, Skepta, and some attractive accomplices on the run from police. The duo can also be seeing performing the track while on dirtbikes, which may or may not have been a part of their getaway.
