Last month, Pro Era’s Powers Pleasant dropped his debut single “Pull Up” featuring Pro Era star Joey Badass and fellow New York native ASAP Ferg. Now the three have returned for a sporty, Tokyo Drift-esque new video shot in the flashy streets of Shibuya, Japan and New York. JMP directs.
The visuals match the braggadocious nature of the single, where Ferg and Badass challenge any haters to pull up. Punctuated with arcade game motifs and comically placed subtitles, the video follows Powers and Badass as they secure what seems to be a sort of nitro-boost for Ferg, who needs the juice in order to compete in the video’s final street racing scene.
The two arrive at the site of the race, surrounded by luxurious cars and models as Ferg hops into his vehicle for the final scene. The boost does its job and Ferg and the crew come out on top as winners. The video also includes cameos from model Slick Woods and actress/activist Amandla Stenberg.
“Pull Up” is the first track from Powers’ forthcoming EP, which will also feature Denzel Curry, IDK, Flatbush Zombies, and others. Last month, Powers also announced that he signed with Commission Music.
Though this is Powers' first solo single, the Pro Era member has worked with Badass numerous times in the past, co-producing his platinum single “Devastated” and traveling with Joey as his official tour DJ.
