A$AP Ferg doesn’t disappoint when it comes to his visuals. For his “New Level” video, he presented a post-apocalyptic menagerie of riots, babes and fire. In his latest clip for “Let It Bang,” the Harlem rapper takes it to the streets and tells a story about a young man named Psycho.
The Shomi Patwary-directed video starts with a new Ferg song called “Psycho” produced by Clams Casino and DJ Khalil. This is where we meet Pyscho, played effectively by Young Dirty Bastard, the son of late Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ol Dirty Bastard.
From there we watch as Psycho descends into a dark world where he’s toting guns and using drugs. Fergenstein narrates the young man’s volatile story in a playground donning a classic neon-green Wu Wear leather jacket.
The clip then segues into a dark room with ScHoolboy Q spitting a tale about his crackhead uncle and his former life as a drug dealer. Both Ferg and Q stay with the Wu-Tang theme wearing black hoodies and stocking masks mimicking the front cover of Wu-Tang Clan’s classic 1993 album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
Overall, it’s a striking visual of inner-city life told through the eyes of A$AP Ferg and ScHoolboy Q.
A$AP Ferg’s sophomore album, Always Strive and Prosper, is expected to hit stores April 22.
