The young Atlanta rap trio Migos are the rare rap group who can maintain a giddy energy over a six-and-a-half-minute song, and the title of “Cross The Country,” the opening track from the group’s great new Rich Nigga Timeline mixtape, turns out to be something of an understatement. The group filmed the song’s FADER-produced new video while they were touring Europe for the first time. Director and A$AP Rocky collaborator Shomi Patwary films the group while they’re posing in front of various Paris landmarks, buying vast quantities of weed in Amsterdam, and performing in front of a club full of amped-up Europeans. The song’s springy energy translates beautifully in the video, and it fits Patwary’s woozy, quick-cutting style nicely. Also, I love how these guys all lip-sync each other’s ad-libs. Watch the video below.
