Dodging security guards at an abandoned Beenleigh shopping centre was all part of the fun filming Gold Coast rapper Jesswar’s new music video XTC.
"XTC is about change – going from drugs and alcohol to a much cleaner life style. It’s about surviving the hard times, leaving drugs behind and becoming a much happier person," said Jesswar.
"I wanted to push the message that partying and doing drugs is all fun and games until the party’s over and you have to pay the consequences. Whether it’s getting stuck in a trip or overdosing, there comes a time when you have to live life without substance abuse."
XTC is the first song from Jesswar's upcoming second EP Blue Roses x Red Violets. She worked on it with Tasmanian producer Disposition. Jesswar says the EP has a flume meets Lauryn Hill type vibe and is different from her previous releases.
