I can’t remember the last music video that actually kept my attention for the entirety of the song. This one has me glued to the tube like I’m watching MTV in early 90’s. First of all, the song which sample Amadou & Mariams Sabali is sick on it’s own. Damian Marley and Nas don’t make microwave music so when I heard they were working on an album together I knew it was going to be some high quality engaging entertainment. The video for this song comes eight months later but man was it worth the wait, no pun intended.
Nabil Elderkin goes all out on the cinematography, giving us one of the most epic videos I’ve seen in a while. You might recognize the style from Kanye’s Coldest Winter, Welcome To Hearbreak or Paranoid videos which he also directed but this is by far his most epic. Two of my favorite artists who both deliver incredible verses in a pretty much flawless song, enjoy.
