After waking up Jamaica with his crimson tinged single earlier this year, the official visual for Protoje’s “BLXXD MONEY” is finally here! Directed by Che Kothari with Production by Claire Osman, viewers get a glimpse of the many forms of corruption, a broader look than the lyrics which spoke about corruption in high places, and the various turns made throughout its running time. The video targets every class, and those who practice the dirty ways will eventually see a fall. A statement making song that turned into a powerful video, more like “What A BLXXDCLXXT Film“! Watch the visual below.
Protoje really had our attention in 2016.
With the release of his “Royalty Free EP”, appearances at Coachella, his launch of the “New Wave” concert series, and other various happenings, people are still asking if he’s dropping a follow up to the outstanding “Ancient Future” album anytime soon. While no word on that yet, Protoje has been feeling a lil on the crimson side late last year and it now manifests itself as his 2017 debut single, “Blood Money“.
It’s your move. Today’s new video comes from Cham and it features Damian “Junior Gong” Marley. Titled “Fighter” and directed by Kush Asher, we see Cham and Gong playing a game of chess while we witness how corrupt the system can be through a promising young man’s experience. Love this video as it highlights what’s going on daily and I do enjoy how the tables have turned in this as well. Would Cham and Gong do an EP together? Who knows…Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
