Toronto's Big Lean has been known to project heartfelt soulfulness and pain through what appears to be a menacing demeanour, but for his new video for "Everything's Alright" he goes out of his way to showcase his generosity. Shot by Zac Facts in Saint Mary Parish, Jamaica and in Toronto's Parma Court (former home of Roney), the video offers an exposed looks at Big Lean's career as he performs for fans and gives away hot meals, making this the most hip-hop way to give to charity.

Dancehall superstar Sizzla is shown performing on stage with Big Lean in Jamaica to dozens of adoring fans, and you can see Big Lean stand in the water while looking out onto the horizon. Meanwhile, back in his hometown, Big Lean enlists the help of Jimmy Johnson to hand out food and gifts to the citizen's of the Parma Court neighbourhood. The song itself is hopeful and uplifting, with Big Lean rapping over a sample of Bad English's "When I See You Smile".

Look for Big Lean's new project Enough is Enough, coming soon.
