Post Malone and 21 Savage Release Bloody ‘Rockstar’ Video [WATCH]
Directed by Emil Nava, Posty and Savage channel the epic and bloody fight scene from Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film "Kill Bill."
In the clip, Malone, dressed in an all-white suit, gets confronted by a gang of black-suited cutthroats with only a samurai and a will to live. He soon engages in a bloody fight to the death as we see several men get slashed and lots of blood being spilled. Malone is soon joined by his female counterpart who is just as deadly and leaves bodies in her wake.
Meanwhile, Savage, dressed in all-black, is far removed from the bloody fight scene and is chilling in a temple. But he does show up drenched in blood at the end of the video.
The visual comes as Post Malone had to fight off criticism that he's a culture vulture after suggesting that one shouldn't listen to hip-hop if you want to hear "real shit." In a recent Twitter video, the "White Iverson" rapper clarified his remarks.
“What I was saying was, when I wanna sit down and cry I listen to Bob Dylan and his guitar," he said. "Just like everyone else, no matter how hard you are, no matter where you’re from, you’re gonna have a time where you sit back and you reflect on your life and you listen to what you wanna listen to. For me, that’s Bob Dylan.”
He went on to defend his own music.
“My last hip-hop album was fucking hip-hop, my next hip-hop album is fucking hip-hop, I love hip-hop, I make hip-hop," he continued. "I wanna take this genre and stretch it so far that people who may not listen to it listen to it.”
