Interesting if disorienting clip. I would have preferred to see more of Gil instead of all the skateboard kids dressed up for Day of the Dead. However, videos are a marketing tool, and Scott-Heron’s label obviously wants the young folks to pick up the album.
Directed by Coodie & Chike (the same team behind Mos Def’s recent “Casa Bey” clip) and Michael Sterling Eaton. Taken from I’m New Here, which drops February 9 on XL/Beggars Group.
