D-Pryde – Faded (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

You’re not “hood enough,” you’re not “Black enough”, you’re not “hip-hop” enough.

While a lot of people used to tell Toronto’s D-Pryde what he wasn’t, it seems that more and more now see quite clearly what he is. And what’s that exactly? A 19-year-old Filipino MC that toured and opened for J. Cole, landed a record deal with BMS, and just released his first EP, Canal & Richvale. He’s come a long way since the start of his career in Brampton, Ontario, where he was constantly ridiculed and bullied for his dreams of becoming a rapper. But even though he’s currently completing his own tour now, which included Chicago’s esteemed Lollapalooza festival, D-Pryde is still in shock of what’s become of his reality, claiming it’s “the greatest feeling in the world right now” and that “it still feels like a dream”.

Here’s the video for his new single “Faded”, which was featured on XXL’s website and describes the inner demons that come along with success. Related: Drake- ’5am In Toronto’ (Video)
