Directed by Illvibe
Produced by Classified
Additional vocals from Mike Boyd and Classified
Toronto rapper and Northstarr label head D.O. (short for ‘Defy the Odds’) presents “Never Gets Old”, his new Classified-produced single featuring Maestro Fresh Wes. "Never Gets Old" appears on Down Home, D.O.’s album produced entirely by JUNO award-winning producer Classified and also featuring Joell Ortiz, Saukrates, Chad Hatcher, Mic Boyd, Spesh K, J-Bru and Jake Boyd.
D.O. is the 2003 Guinness World Record holder for longest freestyle rap (watch), a regular public speaker with his own school tour program Stay Driven, a Toronto Independent Music Award nominee (for his 2007 album Northstarr), a #1 CMJ artist and regularly performs internationally, most recently performing as one half of the duo Art Of Fresh alongside Snoop Dogg and ASAP Rocky at Croatia’s Fresh Island Fest, Europe’s biggest beach festival.
2014 releases from D.O. include the Home For The Summer mixtape (listen), as well as videos for “I Live For This” (watch) and “Still In It” (watch). "It was great to work with an artist I have looked up to since I picked up the microphone," D.O. says of his collaboration with Maestro Fresh Wes. "The track – and the video – are about having that same love for Hip-Hop as when you started. It was great to go back to my hometown to shoot the video and kick it with the same crew I hung out with when I was a teenager."
