DopeHead – “Airbags” Video

As a Baltimore native, I appreciate it when anybody can display local pride while, at the same time, admitting that their hometown is a total shithole. Detroit rapper DopeHead does that beautifully in his elegant black-and-white video for the track “Airbags.” He also bashes Drake and Wiz Khalifa claims to be high enough that he can “piss on your planet.” Danny Brown and a J Dilla LP cover make cameos, and Storymode directs. This is a very good rap video. Watch it below.

Detroit, it bears mentioning, is the only city I’ve ever seen where entire skyscrapers stand obviously abandoned, which continues to amaze me.
