Michael Rodrigues
The Complicated Hour

“I knew after meeting Mbuso (bushabal.wav) that there was this tenderness and sincerity to him – he didn’t have a need to parade his masculinity. I started thinking that it would be interesting to do a hip-hop music video that showcased the artist’s vulnerability. It excited me to subvert the attitude and male bravado that is typically at the forefront of hip-hop videos. Opposed to graffiti we see a wall of flowers, in place of an entourage surrounding our artist we see him isolated.” Director, Michael Rodrigues. Bushabal.wav describes the process of writing and producing “The Complicated Hour” as a coping mechanism in reaction to a series of hard and unfortunate moments he experienced. He says that the entire EP was conceptualized, produced and recorded in complete isolation.
