Yesterday, the young, New York boom-bap revivalist known as Joey Bada$$ released a video for his Basquiat produced single, “Christ Conscious.” The single, along with “Big Dusty” will be included on his forthcoming LP, B4DA$$. The M-I-E directed video puts a modern twist on classic 90s boom-bap videos, particularly Big L’s “Put it On” video from 1995. In the video, Joey waves his arms around, sports a bucket hat, Timberlands and a New York hockey jersey, keeping the tradition of New York swagger typified by Big L and more recently A$AP Nast. There are however, subtle differences between the “Christ Conscious” video and those aforementioned. As he walks through the streets of Brooklyn, rectilinear video effects glimmer in the background. He also casually get’s seemingly possessed and levitated into the sky as the song fades. Watch the video below.
