Sonny Digital bares itall on “Keep it Real.”
After dropping off his solo cut “”Keep It Real,” Atlanta producer and rapper Sonny Digital has doubled down on the effort with new visuals. Directed by JT Films, the new clip is set in a church as Sonny effectively confesses to his sins and confronts his transgressions as he lays out lines like, “Strippers in the club and they’re dancing every night / Lord forgive ’em cause you know they ain’t living right /Lord forgive me cause I’ma be in there tonight.”
Sonny’s recent transition into being behind the mic instead of behind the boards, the position from which he crafted the backdrop for hits like 2 Chainz‘s “Birthday Song” and YC’s “Racks,” has been a seamless one from the looks of it. His decision to do so spawned from a perceived lack of respect for producer’s as outlined in a social media rant last year.
“I’m not on my producer shit like that no more because even when I was tryna be a producer, they wasn’t tryna give me the credit,” he said. “I was putting up the points; they wasn’t giving me the credit for the shit. Now, with me rapping, I got my own voice and shit, I can say what I want, over my beats…the same beats they catchin’ hits off of.”
