DERTY SESH Video(s) Removed From Circulation:

To Whom It May Concern,

We have decided to withdraw the Derty Sesh video(s) from circulation.

We apologise to anyone that may have been offended. That was certainly not our intention.

The aim of the video was never to promote anything negative towards women, and seeing as it has done so, and caused such a reaction, it is only right that MTC as a label respect the public's views.

Imagery or lyrics depicted in or around a music video is no more an endorsement by the artist as a movie is an endorsement by a director and actor.  Because your favorite movie star is violent in a movie does not mean he or she is violent in real life, nor applauds that type of behavior.

While it was never intended to upset people in this way, it obviously has. Again we apologise, and would like to state that violence of any kind is abhorrent and should not be tolerated.

Derty Sesh is a talented young artist, and we will look to support him as he continues his career.

This is a big hoax.. If you actually go to youtube to check for the vid.. it clearly says that the 'video has been removed by the user.'

Cmon kirk!

we aint that stupid!

Catherine said...

Mark? Where u at? Any comments?

Mark and I went back and forth on this issue. I dont agree the video should of been pulled maybe censored. But, I applaud MTC you really impressed me . Not sure being a VP at Universal Music Group may have been a reason for the video being pulled
.
But thank you so much for the statement and the recognition of the sensitivity this video may have had on others.

I feel awful for Derty due to the fact this is not the publicity he wanted given to be a new signed artist with MTC.

I am now a fan and will be a fan of MTC.

Talented. Yeah right!

how the hell can you fire kirk from mtc???sucks online video got such a backlash...i suppose if sesh wanted controvesy it defnitly did its job

Anonymous said...

Good job - sorry Derty but you can't "push the limit" if you have to rip off a Saw movie to create '"controversey". Wow, uber-creative.
Its extremely poor taste when you consider that horrible attack on couple in Starling Park recently - which is just another in a long string of many. Not classy to promote exactly this sort of senseless violence to the punters, I hope this guy can come up with something REAL next time, maybe his dad can help.

Funny, the comment above mentions rape, which doesn't relate to the video seeing as there is no rape in or implied rape in the video.

Then it ends with some racism.

This illustrates to me where NZ audiences are at culturally.

I dont think Derty is the blame for the interpation of the video. As I understood it was upper management with the idea. Dont blame the artist for managements vision.

Blame the management for poor choice BUT given their track history hey they are allowed error and im sure they learned.

As there is a statement posted

It seems you guys think you know what your doing...but your going about it all wrong first of all your now apoligising for derty seshes video and comparing him to an actor? how are you going to ever gather a serious fan base like that or how is anyone going to take him seriously, unfortunatly this talented young man is going to be a flash in the pan because your not focusing on his talent and now that you have a apoligised he looks like a flake and like MTC isnt standing behind him you just tried to make it LOOK like the video was removed but it actually wasnt...it was yous who removed it and when it only had just over a thousand views HAHA ...thats gay. PS best hip hop video was we gon ride by dei hamo...seshes was nice though...

Some people on here act as if they're in the game, just a bunch of know it all's really. Idiot's!

Former Rape Victim said...

WOW, This is way overboard...I dont condone the video but whoever has the video gets prosecuted? is that right?

Just an idea MTC reach out to the Rape Org. and collabrate and realize a mistake as you did and have Derty do a video about the video which caused the controversy and at the end dedicated to all the victims.

I think you guys will redeem and move forward! and of course my idea feel free to send me 10%

LOL Jokes!

Anonymous said...

And check your mate Derty on Facebook promoting the video to be put up on peeps blog WTF

Does he not get it? This apology is whack and fake!

^^^ Facebook stalker, fucking weirdo.

Drastic measures but this video was in poor taste in context with the content of Nathan Kings "character". Given your explanation are we to assume that all the rappers on your label are just "characters" too?

Anonymous said...

The real fucking weirdo is the one who's idea was to flash naked, murdered, bloodied woman in a music video. And if MTC is still promoting the videon on another site! They need to get fucked fine and jailed. And stay there till they mature

censored maybe but not banned dam if people cant draw the lines between reality and something unreal then thats fucked up. An since when did music artist's start raising peoples kids you as PARENTS or GARDIENS should be doing your job right and monitor what your kids are watching. They classed this as porn all i wanna know is what kinda porn do the people that classed this vid watch. who are the real sickos behind these words.

Anonymous said...

and no one thought that this video would create awareness they just pointed out the bad shit in it

Anonymous said...

^ wtf are you talking about? The whole video has "bad shit" in it.

Sesh said the whole point of the video was to cause controversy, he mos-def got that. Just move on now MTC, just another minor bump.

MTC said...

ok kids, listen up... in brief...

"removed by user' = removed by the person who loaded it up. Meaning us. It's not "removed by owner".

MTC will not be re-posting the video anywhere else, we have learned our lesson and we are ready to move on from this experience.

"Drastic measures but this video was in poor taste in context with the content of Nathan Kings "character". Given your explanation are we to assume that all the rappers on your label are just "characters" too?"

Does that make Young Sid a "Character" too ?

When it comes to hihop "Character" in my terms equals "FAKE" ! Like your just playin "dress-ups" Sorry but it does...I don't get use ! Fronting much ? So much for being "Real" !

Anonymous said...

LOL @ the 2nd comment .. & various other comments on here..

In relation to the last comment here implying that "Young Sid" is a character to .. How stupid are you to not be able to differentiate between the 2 .. Not even worth a reply really.

DJ said...

Why do people leave comments, but as anonymous. If you wanna talk shit, leave your name!

I think Derty Sesh is good. Might not have the best lyrics, but from what I've seen, he definitely works hard!

So everyone stop hating, if you haven't made it there yet, shut the fuck up..

Anonymous said...

Well said DJ.

Ruinz said...

I didnt mind the clip at all aye. pending how people look at it really. When you look at "Brother" and how MTC achived a number 1 with touching a audience with that clip/song and getting a whole lot of positive feedback. And now this. MTC making noise for sure.

Im not signed or have any skills on how a record lable is run. But I reckon keep shit original and fresh and new might be a good way. Thats just what I think. We all have diff taste in music at the end of the day.

TROLL said...

I really enjoyed the video...how can these whitey make their tax payer funded show glorifying criminal lifestyle called "Outrageous Fortune" then complain about a video containing a bit of rape fantasy.

If you enjoy Derty Sesh's video you might enjoy this website; it is the same kind of humour imo.

Its just a fucking video.. shesh.. its not like he said.. hi guys im gonna condone rape and violence and slaughterings and what not.. Derty Sesh is no more a character created by Nathan King. as like Marshel Mathers III is the man behind Eminem, thats all the comparison i see between all artists with stage alias. seriously its music.. and music is what i do and love. Let the man do his thing and you do yours.. if you dont like his music, do listen, if you dont like his video, dont watch it.. critics like to bag on a talent that they obviously cannot do.

I love NZ Hip Hop.

"Catherine said...

Mark? Where u at? Any comments?"

I've been working, Catherine. But I've shared my thoughts and ideas with Kirk and MTC over the phone and thru email.

I think it was wrong to apologize and to remove the video, but the clarification in Kirk's most recent statement was the correct way to handle it. And he found out who was really in his corner and who wasn't, and the public discovered who are really Hiphop and who aren't.

As for everyone complaining about 'characters', you people are idiots. Everyone plays a character in a music video. That's the point of a video - illustrating an idea, a concept.

Fat Freddy's don't run fish & chip shops, Dei Hamo isn't a news presenter, Open Souls aren't dead in a car somewhere, King Kapisi and Che Fu aren't sheep farmers...

And next video all of the above will play different roles to illustrate the ideas of that song, too.
