ill Camille Takes Us On A Hometown Journey In New “Black Gold” Video
The crazy, dope MC and songwriter, ill Camille channels the harsh truth of being black in this Red Carter-directed visual from her HEIRLOOM album.
ill Camille, who just conceived the “Intentions” video with The ViLLAGE and The Pollyseeds, has been successfully serenading earholes with her latest project, HEIRLOOM. Regarded as one of the best musical efforts of 2017, the Los Angeles original has been doing her best to be in people’s face and share the word about her criminally slept on album.
“Black Gold,” a stand out song about Camille’s warrior strength + the harsh truth of being black in America, finally gets a visual you must see to believe. Shot in her hometown by rising director Red Carter, Camille takes the viewer / listener through the surreal, yet real images of her L.A. neighborhood, while rapping ferociously about injustice and societal fails.
“I didn’t think too much—I said what came to mind and heart,” ill Camille said in a released statement. “I rather the person listening to the song dissect it. But if I had to sum up the feeling of it, what needs to be taken away most is that—no matter the circumstances, my people, God’s people, gon’ prevail.”
“Black Gold,” which features production from DJ Battlecat, DdotOmen and Paperboy Fabe, is a worthy successor to her lead single, “Sao Paulo,” which was a jam we were able to premiere here at OKP back in February.
