Music Video: TPO, Sou Do’M


Artist: TPO
Song: “Sou Do’M”
Director: Abdias Laguerre

Okay, here’s the thing with this song…I thought, from the title that it was going to be something in the sensuous vein. But no, that isn’t the case. It’s “Sou Do’m”…as in “Behind My Back”…and the song, well, is rapper TPO’s rebuke of doubters, haters, and skeptics.

“Sou Do’M” is produced by T-Ced and TPO himself.

Oh, and in the video…

TPO sits on an ottoman (his throne?), surrounded by two leggy models, who grind their hips, flip their blonde manes, and show off their leather-tightened buttocks. In the opening scene, there is Mr. TPO, shirtless, and displaying quite a chest. He’s being handed all his baller-status accessories by his live-in dame…chain, designer shirt, and his kicks. A smoking Impala is on the roof of the penthouse…waiting for its owner to jump in the driver’s seat and make the rounds of the nightlife.

Chak lè yo di mwen pa vini/Mwen fè espre mwen parèt
Every time they tell me not to show my face/I defy ’em and show up

It’s easy to dismiss this song as yet another braggadocio-type of rap song. At the core of it, though, is a message some may be able to identify with. It’s about sustaining oneself emotionally, when others are backbiting you, pulling you down in vicious attempts to kill your dreams. It’s about believing and pushing forward to fulfill your purpose when the whole universe seems to have a vendetta against you.

Well, see the video for yourself…below—
