Big Sean’s new album Dark Sky Paradise seems to have finally rescued him from being the butt of every rap joke. Tom lauded the record in his rap column, and both “IDFWU” and “Blessings” are undeniably great songs, even as they express completely opposite emotions. His latest single “One Man Can Change The World” once again features high profile guests — Kanye West and John Legend both contribute renditions of the chorus. Today, he’s released a black and white video for the song that addresses gun violence, death, and the experience of children who grow up surrounded by these things. Shots of Big Sean carrying a coffin are interspersed with a young kid who is mourning the death, as well as scenes with police dressed in riot gear standing in the neighborhood streets. The video was directed by Andrew Hines and Jeff Powers. Watch below.
Dark Sky Paradise is out now.
