Ryan Stinson and D-Sisive drop video for “Rain”

D-Sisive slated to play 2014 MoSo Festival

Saskatoon hip-hop producer and Phonographique ringleader Ryan Stinson has dropped a video for his single “Rain” – a song that appeared on his album FUTURA. The song also features Toronto’s D-Sisive, who is slated to play this year’s MoSo Fest, along with Ghettosocks and Relic, Kay the Aquanaut, Charly Hustle, T-Rhyme, Wizards and The Florals.

Directed by Geordie Gescha of Souldatta Productions, the video details a stark but moving journey of family ties and baseball.

D-Sisive recently posted a lengthy article on the video and his own connection to the sport:

I was the Captain Chunk amongst my slim pals. They loved playing sports and I hated running. I’d rather quote In Living Color episodes than chase balls. I also loved being with my friends, so I sacrificed a lot of time watching them move. They all decided to sign up for a baseball house league at Smythe Park. I could hit a lob-pitched softball pretty far, so I figured I’d join them, and maybe make my dad proud in the process. I arrived at my first practice and was immediately terrified when I found out the league was fast pitch. Fuck! I wanted to quit, but my mom’s cheque for $80 was already cashed, and I didn’t want to look like a pussy.
