Ka - "Our Father" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Ka delivers the official video for "Our Father", the latest single to emerge since the arrival of his sophomore LP Grief Pedigree in 2012. Following the string of videos he produced for several tracks on his last project, Ka shot and edited this video. The Brownsville lyricist litters this track with conflicting emotions as he bares his soul before sinning. Dropping a poignant point in a hard prayer, he asks the lord to look away from the heinous acts he intends to commit in his quest to avenge the death of a friend. Ka drops this manifesto over a simple track that plays like a ticking time bomb; the creative license in this case was a clever way to breathe suspense into the subject matter, ultimately demonstrating the gravity that accompanies the decision to take another person's life. Check the footage below.
