So this video is far from new – Paul Dateh posted this little performance with Inka One almost two years ago. But a quick visit to his site makes it clear he’s still pushing things. If you just watch this one video, I can see how you might be tempted to call it ‘gimmicky’, but if you check out some of his other work, you can see he’s clearly a very talented musician making his way by sometimes taking a slightly different approach with his music. His hip hop covers might make for better ‘viral’ videos, but does this say more about the artist or what appeals more to a wider audience? Makes good food for thought in terms of how indie artists market themselves and reach audiences to gain wider appeal…
