After having a breakout year in 2017, Rich Gang affiliate Derez Deshon has found his lane and will be on his way to scoring big this year. He dropped his street album, Pain, late last summer and has been blazing his own trails ever since. We finally have the video for his breakout single “Hardaway” produced by London on The Track. “Hardaway” took Derez Deshon from the underground to national club/radio rotation in the last six months and with this new video directed by Morocco Vaughn, he is on his way to reaching even greater heights.
In the video, Vaughn depicts a would be success story that ends in unfortunate tragedy as Derez Deshon struggles to walk the straight and narrow, while he and his child hood friend try to make it out of a bad situation. Derez’s character finds himself constantly getting in trouble, while his friend is on a path of success through sports. Just when they both seem to find a way out of their struggles, Derez’s friend is gunned down over a senseless conflict that has escalated towards his friends untimely death.
The video has a few major cameos from stars/affiliates Birdman, Waka Flocka, Ralo FAM Goon and DJ Envy of the Breakfast club. Many people that could not identify Derez Deshon in the past will most likely know his face now as he continues to illastrate his strife through his triumphant music.
