SZA Shares Video for “Supermodel”

posted by Oscar July 31, 2017

Top Dawg Entertainment’s SZA has released the music video for “Supermodel,” one of the brilliant tracks from her brilliant 2017 album, Ctrl.

In the visual, directed by Nabil, we find the singer rock her dopest, barely-there outfit as she struts through a forest that plays like nature’s runway, as fairy children gas her up along the way. After that, SZA finds herself in a playground as schoolchildren help her shoot fireworks in retaliation at a man, much like the one you hear described in the lyrics.

The lady is looking flawless and like the supermodel of your dreams. Check out the new video above.

posted by Oscar April 18, 2017

King Kendrick Lamar followed up a stellar headlining performance at Coachella this past weekend by unleashing a new music video for a track off the newly released album, DAMN. Kendrick’s new video for standout track “DNA.” was directed by Nabil and the Little Homies (Kendrick and Dave Free), and it stars Don Cheadle.

The visual commences with Cheadle and Lamar in an interrogation room, which turns to the famed actor trading off performing some of the lyrics of the track with the Compton rapper. For the final shot you see the whole squad together, leading to ScHoolboy Q walking over to the camera and punching it. S/o to Pitchfork for pointing out that the Chinese characters on the outfit Kendrick’s rocking in the video spell out “Kung Fu Kenny.”

Vince Staples recently dropped a super dope EP called Prima Donna and now he has released a short film for it too.

The visuals were directed by Nabil, and in it we see Staples cut from scene to scene as his latest material either plays in the background or he raps along to them. We start out with Vince filming a video for “Big Time,” and then proceeds to a bizarre journey filled with visions of wild and alluring fans, paparazzi, and tribal Africans dancing. His songs “Smile,” “Prima Donna,” “War Ready,” “Loco,” and “Let It Shine” serve as the score for the short film.
