KOOL A.D. Gets Trippy In New Video For Toro Y Moi Produced "Santeria"

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

While we wait for KOOL A.D. to drop O.K. The Novel, we continue to unpack his ambitious 100 song O.K. mixtape of the same name that dropped at the end of 2015. Today, we get visuals for track #3 off of the tape, the Toro Y Moi produced “Santeria.” The video starts off normal enough, with a zebra painted donkey being ridden by a cowboy hat wearing dog (standard stuff), and then things get a little trippy. Through some visual effects, we’re taken to the front seat next to KOOL A.D. while he spits those multi-lingual bars touching on yoruba culture and Santeria practices while mixing in his signature stream of conscious flow - that beat is crazy. Watch the Nick Knight Collective directed visuals, below. I'm sure we'll be getting more from KOOL A.D. soon enough.
