"Patrik Premiers Entrancing Music Video For "Lone""

Watch the video for Patrik's single "Lone" over here.
Canadian rapper Patrik recently premiered the visuals for his single "Lone."


Earlier this year, the artist explained that the song was about "accepting isolation in order to confront the overwhelming thoughts" he experienced. He went on to reveal that one of the main messages behind the song was one that he felt would resonate with audiences from all walks of life. "You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.”

The black and white video compliments the eerie and emotive feel of the track, inviting viewers to take the plunge as the song and accompanying visuals explore new depths. - Hot New Hip Hop


"Patrik's "Diamond" Visuals Show Love To Both Toronto & Montreal"

Stream the Arash Maleki directed video for Patrik's "Diamonds" single.

Patrik's Spadina EP arrived before the new year and featured six tracks that showcased the true talent of the Montreal/Toronto based rapper who has made a name for himself in both of his cities. Following up on the beloved tape, Patrik is here with the official video for the second track "Diamonds" that is a visual mashup of different clips that compliment Patrik's lyrics.


"[We're] trying to create things differently," Patrik previously stated about his video work. "I got my art director who’s always creating different ways for me to approach different things so having that and having different people to work with is going to be even better for the process."

On the topic of Toronto being a city for upcoming artists, he said "it has this ability to make artists out of nothing, which I think a lot of cities can’t do, maybe in the states like Atlanta, New York."

He added: "A lot of cities can’t do that and the one thing I appreciate the most is that people actually vibrate to the music I’m putting out cause it doesn’t sound like what the city is spreading right now."

"Premiere: Start Your Week with a New Video from Patrik for "Entitled""

Montreal-born Patrik is an artist who is inspired by his surroundings, and attending a showing by Pierre-Marie Cespedes at the LivArt gallery in Montreal in November was one of those times. He was immediately inspired by the space and creative energy that was permeating the walls of the Montreal art hub, and so it became the setting of his latest video for "Entitled," which we are premiering here today.

“We saw this as an opportunity to capture performance art, in a pure form, in a gallery (which at the time was housed by photography portraits),” says video producer, Arash Maleki, of Montreal-based Pigeon House Productions x Beso TV. “It is kind of like if a portrait came to life to unload the content and emotion within its frames. As an avid fan of art, Patrik creates an ode of sorts, a performance to come support and animate the spirit of the art hanging on the walls of the gallery.”


"Entitled" is the first track from Patrik's forthcoming Spadina EP, the name being an ode to the neighborhood where Patrik now resides after a move to Toronto. “'Entitled' is the embodiment of my transitioning," says Patrik of the song. "In style, it visually captures the simplicity of reinventing myself. Content with where I’m heading, disregarding complimentary statements.”


If you live in Toronto or Montreal you have a few chances to see Patrik live over the next month. Peep the tour dates below and enjoy "Entitled" above, or listen on your favourite streaming service including Spotify.

"Patrik Enters the Void in New Video for "Lone""

Canadian emcee, Patrik, has been steadily making waves in the scene for a minute now thanks to some real sonic eclecticism. If you haven't been keeping up, the Toronto-via-Montreal talent recently dropped his latest offering Spadina, and you should peep it now on all major streaming platforms.

But aside from the aforementioned project, Patrik has been on a real tear this year, blessing fans with singles and music videos for standout tracks "StayLone"and "Entitled". Now, and because the man just doesn't stop, we're getting a visual treatment for yet another tune.

Yesterday, Patrik debuted uploaded a video accompanying his introspective banger "Lone". The track, which came out this past March, has the rapper spitting mystic lines about Judas, isolation, and nodding in the clouds. Naturally, the Sava Terehoff-directed take on the song lives up to its psychedelic theme, and sees Patrik trip through an astral wormhole. You can check it all out above via YouTube and be sure to stream Spadina below via Apple Music. - Complex

Ahead of his return to light up the stage at Canadian Music Week, Toronto-via-Montreal rapper, Patrik, shares the video for his single "Entitled" -

Entitled is the embodiment of my transitioning,” Patrik says of the track. “In style, it visually captures the simplicity of reinventing myself. Content with where I’m heading, disregarding complimentary statements.
The video was shot at the LivArt gallery in Montreal. He was immediately inspired by the space and creative energy that was permeating the walls of the Montreal art hub when he visited it for a vernissage.

"Patrik Drops Off New Song "SRRYINADVNCE""

Stream Patrik's latest musical offering.
Rising act Patrik has come through with a new GoldSoul-produced track "SRRYINADVNCE." According to Patrik, he's been holding onto the song for "a year now" and we're so pleased he's finally dropped it off since it's a smooth, catchy beat that compliments Patrik's cadence.


The lyrical content seemingly touches on Patrik's moves of constantly grinding to get where he is and understanding that a higher power's got his back. "Never worry got a plan, when the plans not the plan, know the Lord's got a hand so I'm sorry in advance," he spits.

We can't say for sure whether the song's coming off an upcoming tape by Patrik, but considering he just dropped off his album Spadina before the new year, both projects will hold us over until we get some new tunes from the Montreal based artist.
