Words by Emily Shapiro—
Last week, our Mixtape Mondays column featured The Transporter, the new, action movie-inspired, full-length mixtape from diabolical dancehall genius and LargeUp favorite Leftside, a/k/a Dr. Evil. Mixed by Mr. Shaun of Coppershot Sound, the track list includes some catchy originals, high-energy remixes and, in true Leftside style, some theatrical and comedic skits.
To accompany the release, Dr. Evil has dropped a new video for the mixtape’s opening tune, “Do You Know Who I Am?” This is not your typical, half-naked women, bottle-popping dancehall video. Directed by Chris “Icey Jace” Campbell, the video sees Leftside getting his international criminal on with a shady briefcase drop between the “Boss” and the “Mob Lord,” set to Leftside’s spot-on Jason Statham impression (Seriously, his impression skills put most of today’s comedians to shame) and—just as often—The Godfather theme music. Large up Leftside for the ill mixtape, original video and continued creative entertainment. Stream the video and mixtape below:
