Toronto-based multi-faceted, culturally enlightened rapper & accomplished writer Humble the Poet has released the official music video for his single “I WILL,”

The video was written, directed, and edited by Humble himself, and was filmed in Toronto last summer.

Exploring themes with emotions, touching on cultural appropriation, body image & shaming, cancer survivors, the immigrant experience, affluenza, the world we're leaving our children, and aesthetics heavily influenced by the 1979 film The Warriors. 

"I WILL" celebrates diversity, intensity, Boom Bap Hip Hop, and all things authentic. The verses for the song were all written at various times in Humble's life, with the second verse being written in 2011, making this project 7 years in the making.

"The journey creating this music video is a testament to the amazing city of Toronto,” Humble explains. “Everyone in front and behind the camera, including the designers worn are all Toronto based, and this video is another pillar to Toronto's continued creative wave.”

In addition to everything Humble the Poet is doing in music, he is also making waves in the publishing world, specifically with his book – Unlearn: 101 Simple Truths for a Better Life, which peaked at #4 on the Globe & Mail best sellers list and has remained on the list since October of 2017.
