Toronto-born, Trinidadian/Guyanese-blooded rapper/producer King Reign (Rhyme Energy In God’s Nature) sadly passed away in 2016. His memory lives on with the Solis Animation-directed new video for his song “Santa Romeo,” which is produced by Darp Malone, with a DJ Skratch Bastid drum edit and featuring Ivana Santilli on the horn.
King Reign’s last album was Sincere, featuring production from Gameboy, Rich Kidd, Pro Logic, Darp Malone, and Reign himself. A former Sony/Columbia artist, Stylus Award winner and Juno Award nominee (as part of group Brassmunk), King Reign has collaborated with Drake, Pharaohe Monch, Raphael Saadiq, Saukrates, Kardinal Offishall and Boi-1da.
Reign’s videos from the Sincere album are for “Happylaidback” and “Chemical Romance” (watch below).
