Pusha T, Tyler, the Creator Destroy L.A. in Video — Watch
OFWGKTA front man Tyler, the Creator joins forces with Pusha T of the Clipse on the visual for the latter’s new Neptunes-produced single ‘Trouble on My Mind,’ from his forthcoming EP ‘Fear of God Part 2: Let Us Pray.’
The video, directed by Jason Goldwatch and shot in Los Angeles after the Odd Future House of Blues show where Tyler broke his foot on June 18, does a successful job of marrying the two rappers’ vastly different worlds, enacting various scenes of random, choreographed mayhem and destruction of property.
Tyler’s colorful leg cast appears to be just part of his wardrobe, as the clip takes viewers through OFWGKTA’s home city, where Tyler and his elder collaborator don masks and enact various other scenes of random mayhem, egging unsuspecting Beverly Hills residents, enjoying a lesbian make-out scene, destroying a hotel room and leading a skateboard army through Downtown L.A., astride a motorized wheelchair and crutches.
“The whole concept of this video was to basically show how the two worlds collide,” Pusha explains in behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot. “I have a street background, coming from the Clipse, the Reup Gang, Tyler comes from this independent subculture, I think people would not expect for us to be able to make a record that’s so fundamentally hip hop sound.”
Pusha’s ‘Fear of God Part 2: Let Us Pray’ is in stores on August 23.
