21 Savage Addresses Racism In “Nothin New” Video

Published

on

21 Savage uses the latest single off of “Issa Album” to tackle police brutality.

21 Savage is a man of many layers. While his name is Savage, he’s proven there’s depths to his character. He came into the rap game with a menacing presence. His monotone voice and lack of expression coincides with what he’s been through. He’s told his story in his music and interviews while addressing the violence and murder he’s witnessed while in the streets. Now that he’s in a better position, both financial and socially, he’s able to speak on a larger matter at hand. Today, he tackles police brutality and the complexity of being black in America in the video for “Nothin New.”

21 Savage’s latest video is a glimpse into the struggle of being black in America. The video opens up with notable clips of Colin Kaepernick, Barack Obama and Lebron James. While Colin Kaepernick discusses the issues with both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it later cuts to a clip of Obama speaking on Kaepernick’s choice to kneel during the anthem. Then it shows the famous clip of Lebron James’ unapologetic response to calling Trump a “bum.”

The video later shows 21 Savage at an funeral, a clip that later unfolds into the video’s message. The visuals for “Nothin New” follows a young girl whose mother is an addict and her father in prison. It later shows the same child robbing a store before being followed by the police and getting shot and killed. It’s a deep video that deals with the systemic racism in America while showcasing it through the eyes of a young girl who lived through the cycle.

“Nothin New” was a stand-out record on his album, Issa Album. It was a brutally honest effort where 21 Savage confronts racial inequality in America through his own eyes. It’s also the first visual he’s released off of the project since it’s release in June.

Published

David Alex Villegas, better know by his stage name SkinnyFromThe9, is an American rapper from Somerville, New Jersey. After gaining widespread attention following “Love Blast” release in late 2017, which led to him signing to L.A. Reid’s record label, HITCO, in late 2018.

Skinny is now making a lot of sense in the industry. Not only musically, but also because he adds up real depth to an often empty genre. We always felt like Playboi Carti invented a new vibe, and we give him credit for that, but could not really understand if the timing was not right or his univers was too staged.

With Skinny we get the vibe, the lyrics are coherant with the artist himself. The video effect have their place, as they sum up the actual lyrics.

That! is! a perfect match. Take a minute to leave a comment if you feel this way.
