Nathan R. Smith joins Kode for UK Music Video Rep

Hailing from Washington DC, Nathan expressed his ideas through documentary and photography from a young age. After attending film school, he quickly formed relationships with up-and-coming artists Goldlink, DRAM, and Mick Jenkins. He has since gone on to create videos for Joey Bada$$, T-Pain, Erykah Badu, and Raury.

Smith's ability to evoke emotions through hard hitting narratives can be seen in videos such as Mick Jenkins’ Drowning and Joey Bada$$’ Temptation, which premiered at Sundance Next Fest this past summer. In contrast, his sense of humour and versatility comes through in the double MTV Video Music Award nominated video for DRAM and Lil Yachty’s Broccoli.

Kode's Head of Music Videos, Nathan Killham, commented "Aside from being gutted to share my name with somebody else in the Kode family, I’m overjoyed to be reunited with Nathan after producing promos with him over the past couple of years. It’s in that time where I got a real sense of his incredible vision and ability to collaborate with artists, so it’s great to now welcome him to our roster”.

While Smith joins Kode for UK representation, he continues to be represented by Anonymous Content in the US.
