Lately, moody trap superstar Travis Scott has been making surreal and indulgent videos, like his Birds In The Trap short film and his “Goosebumps” video. Meanwhile, NBA star James Harden has had some time on his hands since his Houston Rockets got bounced in the second round of the playoffs. And now the two of them have come together, with Houston native Scott directing Harden in his own new video for “Way Back,” the Kid Cudi/Swizz Beatz collab from last year’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight.
In the video, we see Harden contemplating the gossip that surrounds him, playing one-on-one against himself, and, most notably, hanging upside down, suspended in midair, while sip-syncing Scott’s lyrics, which happen to namecheck Harden himself. The video also features a lot of Adidas product placement. Scott is in there, too, but he’s usually in the background. It’s a weird one! Check it out below.
Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight is out now on Epic/Grand Hustle.
