Turns out that 3 Stacks also contributed a big part to the video, serving as its director. So, as one might guess, the visuals are compelling.
The almost four minute video begins with Silkmoney escaping prison with the help of his cop girlfriend, portrayed by GHE20G0TH1K founder Venus X, and the other three members of Divine Council.
Upon successfully making their escape they celebrate by hot boxing their getaway car and eating snacks at their hideout, until the police arrive and proceed to kill everyone. The last moments of the video provide a poignant commentary, especially as 3000’s words ride the video out.
Speaking to Complex, the members of Divine Council discussed working with Andre on the video.
SilkMoney: Man, having Andre involved was a dream come true. The whole experience of working with him side by side on something so amazing is deadass hard to fathom. Truly appreciate to have a mentor like him and truly appreciative in his belief in us.
Cyrax: Having Andre involved is so cool, he’s really our mentor. He really gets what we trying to do and sees the vision we see.
Icytwat: To be working with a legend like Andre is crazy as hell to me. The video was cool as hell to be in, it was like a movie. Seeing Andre in that director mode and having to be in actor mode was so tight. Definitely a new experience.
Andre 3000 has popped up sporadically throughout 2016 on a number of different artist’s music. He provided backup vocals on Kanye West‘s “30 Hours” from The Life Of Pablo; had a track all for himself on Frank Ocean‘s album Blonde with “Solo (Reprise)”; appeared on Travis Scott‘s “The Ends”; and traded bars with Q-Tip on “Kids…” from We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service.
