Watch Pusha T’s Politically-Charged ‘Pain’ Video Featuring Future

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

With clever drug references like “in the kitchen with a cape on, apron,” no one would blame you for assuming Pusha T was just talking about the anguish of the streets on ‘Pain.’ With his year-old single finally getting the video treatment, it becomes clear Pyrex P’s intentions extend far beyond the here and now.

Guided by a similar minimalist theme as his ‘King Push‘ video, ‘Pain’ pairs black-and-white shots of the G.O.O.D. Music MC with harrowing footage of police brutality, street riots and demonstrations from the civil rights era, making Future‘s tormented hook all the more impactful.

There’s also eerie CCTV footage of Trayvon Martin’s trip to the convenience store that fateful afternoon. After all, “Tre-eight on, coulda been Trayvon / But instead I chose Avon.”

‘My Name Is My Name’ is out now.
