Jidenna has had a nice string of singles and accompanying videos for Long Live The Chief. And while each of them has been good, the streak has been kind of frustrating because we still have no clue when the album is going to drop or if any of these bangers are going to be on it. The last time we saw the classic man he was awkwardly donning a three-piece suit in the Caribbean for the “Little Bit More” video before relaxing a bit. Today, he returns to looking dapper on some boss shit in the clip for “Chief Don’t Run.” As Jidenna loosely narrates his upbringing and what he had to do to get where is in the song, we see a young Jidenna and his mom reenacting his story. Then, he turns into two kinds of chiefs — a kingpin and a police captain. The two have a standoff as the kingpin looks to protect his territory and the policeman makes an arrest in an effort to rid the streets of crime. Watch.
Still no word on when Long Live The Chief will come.
