Video: Kae Sun 'Lifeline (Citizen Cope Cover)'

[embed width="600"][/embed]


We don't really f- with Citizen Cope but we do with this "Lifeline" cover by Ghana's Kae Sun, who flips the tune to showcase gentrification in his new home of Ontario. The video shows "the tranformation of Regent Park a low income downtown Toronto neighborhood where affordable social housing is being demolished to make room for upscale condominiums — a short documentation of how poverty is made invisible." Watch the Jason Campbell-directed video above.
