Wale drops the official video for “Golden Salvation” (Jesus Piece) from The Gifted LP – his latest studio release – directed by Coodie & Chike. Pulling from the point-of-view pen game that made Nas‘ “I Gave You Power” such a compelling track, Wale spits about the verisimilitude and vice of the rap life as the voice of the iconic jesus piece – the oft-referenced prerequisite of hip-hop attire that officially earned a seat at the cool table around the same time that shiny suits began to rule the roost. Wale walks us through the highs and lows in the life of an iced out chain before taking this joint to church. The directors nail the multi-faceted perspective in post-production with a kaleidoscopic clip that illustrates what the world looks like from the vantage of a diamond bezel. Check the footage below to watch the video for “Golden Salvation” (Jesus Piece) from Wale. Purchase The Gifted LP via iTunes.
