Gabe Day, Daniel Day Lewis’ Son, Raps In ‘Green Auras’ Video
Gabe Day, the son of Daniel Day-Lewis and the actor's former girlfriend French actress Isabelle Adjani, recently released a music video for his rap song “Green Auras,” in which he riffs on his father’s fame and being bipolar while smoking marijuana.
Daniel Day-Lewis Topic Of Son's Rap
Within the music video, Gabe Day gives shout outs to his college pals at Sarah Lawrence and rap inspirations Nas and J. Cole, who happened to produce the video. The lyrics themselves include a reveal, among other things, a distaste for being compared to his film star father.
"Call me Gabe Day and not Gabe Day-Lewis. Cause if you're trying to call me out, I'm about to Gabe Day Lose-It,” Day raps. "B—h, I know what my name is, and s-t, I know what fame is," Day continues. "Judging someone for their dad is just as bad as being racist."
Gabe Day Raps About Being Bipolar, Drugs
After introducing himself in “Green Auras” opening line as a “bipolar stoop kid,” Day, 18, admits to past struggles with drugs while smoking a number of joints.
"I find out that I'm bipolar, now I wear it like a badge," the actor's son sang. "I was on a bad path. I did too many drugs. Felt like coping on my own when all I needed was a hug. I had a bad trip, reevaluated my life. Thank god I survived ‘cause now it's easier to smile."
While Day-Lewis is the more famous of Day’s parents stateside, having won his third Best Actor Oscar in 2012 for Lincoln, his mother Adjani is also duly celebrated for her craft. Adjani holds the record for the most César Awards for Best Actress and was named "The Most Beautiful Woman in Film" by the Los Angeles Times in 2011.
