On his new single “Push Thru,” underground rap lifer recruited two of his up-and-coming younger peers in Curren$y and Kendrick Lamar. And in the beautifully photographed new video, directors Scott Fleishman and Fredo Tovar film all three rappers in their native locales: New Orleans, New York, Los Angeles. It helps that all three places are so ridiculously photogenic, but there’s a lot of charisma on display in this video. Kendrick’s turn, in particular, could be a star-maker, if videos still made stars, and if Kendrick wasn’t one already. Watch it below.
Kweli’s album Prisoner Of Conscious is coming later this year.
