Juwan Rohan Drops Honest New Video For “Double Entendre”
California rapper Juwan Rohan today releases a new music video for single “Double Entendre”, the first song on his recent album, Stories Told. The track, produced by Legion Beats, shows off Juwan’s versatility as a person and as an artist in laid-back, head-nodding verses.
The style of the video itself speaks to the title of the song, juxtaposing elaborately composed shots with more stripped down, raw footage. Desire Lacapture plays with lighting and fog to create a sort of alternate world featuring a highly self-assured, larger-than-life Juwan, compared to a more vulnerable and relatable version of himself in “real-world” scenes. Overall, the video serves to show the different sides of the real Juwan–a confident, bold artist who’s also an honest person with a sense of humor.
Coming out of Berkeley, CA, Juwan Rohan makes music in hopes of influencing, encouraging, and reaching out to lost souls. Taking inspiration from artists like Kendrick Lamar, Juwan tells stories through his songs which give fans a narrative to relate to. Growing up around the Bay Area, Juwan faced violence and struggle both in his community and in his own household. He was originally influenced by the “hyphy” movement of the early 2000s, but he soon found it to be much more meaningful to relate to a lyric and understand the pain and emotion in a verse. Today, Juwan strives to use music as a platform to inspire, motivate, and influence youth and unite his community.
“Double Entendre” was released as part of Stories Told, Juwan’s latest album. His other music, including popular singles “Dear School Shooter” and “Hypocrite”, are available for streaming now.
