HEADIE ONE – POUND SIGNS
Leading UK rapper Headie One has released a brand new single ‘Pound Signs’.

Commencing with an excerpt from an old interview with Bob Marley, the icon reflects on how financial wealth and mobility does not equate to true riches or personal fulfilment. A more hard-hitting approach to visuals sees Headie provide us with a cinematic and vivid music video that garners inspiration from Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 classic film ‘Reservoir Dogs’.
