ellesse | Take Not3s
Following Hackney, East London born rapper Not3s on his first U.K tour in this exclusive mini-documentary. Fusing sounds from the London grime scene with his Nigerian roots to create his own blend of afro-tinged pop. Not3s had his first viral hit early in 2017 with the release of debut single ’Addison Lee’, a song which takes it’s name from a London based taxi film.
Proving this was no one off, he quickly followed up with hit singles ‘Aladdin’ and ‘My Lover’. His rapid rise though the musical ranks marked an incredible 2017, culminating in his signing with major label Relentless Records and the release of 9 track EP ‘Take Not3s’. He was also nominated for the BBC Sound of 2018.
Going behind the scenes of his first headline U.K tour, I wanted to get up and personal. From intense sweat drenched performances, seen through a sea of mobile phone waving fans, to introspective thoughts on where next for this talented young man.
Make no mistake, in his own words ’everybody take Not3s’.
BEHIND THE SCENES
I brought James Stier onboard as camera operator because I knew he was up for the job. He’s always ready to be faced with challenges, so I could trust getting him to hang the RED off the side of a boat! Also can’t fault the help of our Anattic intern Lemar Maynard, Sound Operator Mark Lomas and runner Mandy James.
