Joey Badass’ “Show Me,” previously brought to the Tonight Show stage alongside the band Men I Trust, is now the impetus behind a new short film starring Serayah.

“The visual is kind of symbolic of what’s next in my career,” Badass told Complex of the new video, out Wednesday. “Aside from the cinematic appeal, you get a taste of what truly inspires my music. Fashion, film, music and my love for the culture are all at the forefront of my vision. I think all those elements including my appreciation for women and my commitment to truly showing them love are apparent in the video.”

The Men I Trust-sampling song appears on Badass’ most recent album, last year’s 2000. See the track’s new Love Jones-inspired short film from directors Levi Turner and McCray Sutherlin up top. 2000 will be further celebrated by Badass with a run of dates alongside Wiz Khalifa, with the two’s joint trek coming to a close at Red Rocks on April 22.

On the acting front, Badass’ current roster of roles—which in the past has included critically acclaimed parts such as Leon on the since-wrapped Mr. Robot—includes portraying Kadeem “Unique” Mathis on the Power universe series Raising Kanan. While the series aired its Season 2 premiere last October, it’s already been renewed for a third season. Expect more info to be shared soon.
