Benny Cassette and B.J. The Chicago Kid go undercover as homeless buskers playing in and around Los Angeles in the official video for “Bridges Over Babylon” directed by Kane Chattey. Their ode to street performance is a wholehearted embrace of the freedom that exists in open-air venues even in spite of the decidedly tough and otherwise unfortunate circumstances that often accompany homelessness. Benny Cassette drops the video ahead of his forthcoming Apocalypse EP which boasts features from B.J., Stacy Barthe, Pell and Isaiah Rashad. The social experiment conducted by the pair found them moving from pillar to post for two days, living only off of what they were able to earn during curbside performances. The clip is a spiritual affirmation with infectious undertones that finds Benny Cassette and B.J. The Chicago Kid getting even closer to the music; the harmonious common denominator that allies them in their respective journeys. Check the footage below to watch the official video for “Bridges Over Babylon.” Stay tuned for more from Benny Cassette.
