Yesterday, Brooklyn’s own Joey Bada$$ turned a video release into a bonafide celebration by hosting screenings of “Devastated” in New York City. Now the rest of the world can also view his hit’s triumphant visual.
Bada$$ and Shomi Patwary co-directed the video together. The latter’s creative collective Illusive Media has worked with the likes of Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky, and Lupe Fiasco. Joey leads a sizable gathering of friends, fans, and family through the streets. Marching bands walk on, dancing ensues, and the worries of the past are safely left behind.
Head above to watch the official video for a nice kick of inspiration this afternoon.
