21 Savage Drops A Poignant New Music Video
21 Savage isn’t exactly known for being a conscious rapper, but that doesn’t mean he can’t dig deeper with his music when need be. Being from the streets, police profiling black men is nothing new to Savage, so it’s not a surprise that these issues would be of huge relevance to him. 21 dropped his new video for the track, “Nothin New” on Thursday and had everybody impressed by how seemingly different this song and visual is from his usual trap music.
The video opens with clips of Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, and Barack Obama all talking about issues including Donald Trump and the racism surrounding them. The video is finished my a young, unarmed black child being shot by police, leading the footage of his family mourning. This music video is a very real look at what oppressed people go through daily, and it’s refreshing to get that point of view from a 21 Savage music video.
