Big Sean released his new album I Decided back in February, and now he’s back with a new music video for LP cut “Light.” In the clip for the Jeremih collab, directed by Lawrence Lamont, Big Sean drives around in a white van picking up victims of senseless violence, including a little girl caught in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting, two unarmed black men shot by police offers, and a woman in a hijab attacked in a hate crime.
“We shot this video a couple months ago and sucks to see these scenes are still consistently playing out in real life…even down to this week,” Sean said in a statement. “It’s disheartening sometimes to see that not much has changed when it comes to hate, police brutality n just overall people losing their lives too early. But when I wrote this song, it was to reassure myself that no matter what happens, they can’t take away our Soul, our confidence, our ideas, n all that makes us shine. This song isn’t a single but is still super important to me, so I paid for a lot of this outta pocket to make sure we got this out. Rest in peace to all those who have lost life due to senseless actions. As I always say, each one of us have the power to make a change, it starts within…the inner Light.”
