Joey Bada$$ – “Hillary Swank” Video

On his recent Summer Knights mixtape, the Brooklyn boom-bap revivalist Joey Bada$$ found himself falling into something of a stylistic rut. But at least visually, Joey and his collaborators keep things shifting around in his new video for the Summer Knights track “Hillary Swank.” The clip, directed by Alex Lill, switches visual perspective from crackling static to crisp photorealism to Hype Williams hyper-reality and location from a cramped office to a festival backstage. Joey’s late friend Capital Steez also makes something of a heartbreaking cameo, via old footage, at the end. Watch it below.
