“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.
