Have you seen those new Sprite billboards featuring Drake, Nas, Rakim and Biggie? The billboards are a part of Sprite’s new “Obey Your Verse” multimedia ad campaign honoring Hip Hop. In support of the campaign, Fader has produced four mini-documentaries with Drake, Nas, IsaiahRashad and Vince Staples. We’re proud to share that these documentaries were scored by Philly resident and friend to the Anderson Street Project, Khari Mateen.
What DOESN’T Khari do? He’s a multi-instrumentalist, playing the cello, bass, and the drums among others. He’s a touring musician, currently performing with Aussie pop superstar Cody Simpson. He’s a go-to producer for the Roots and Jill Scott. He scores for film and visual projects. And to top it off, he’s a recording artist with his latest project set to drop later this fall.
