O.C. paints a harrowing portrait our world’s future in his politically charged new video for “A New Dawn,” the debut set visuals f the February 16th release his latest effort, A New Dawn, which is the second phase his Same Moon Same Sun trilogy.
Flanked by men wearing all-too-real masks Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, the Brooklyn rap king provides a vivid lyrical breakdown his current mindstate, and where we may all be headed if things don’t change. Not to give too much away, but it’s pretty clear where the world—or what’s left it—could be headed, but it’s not all doom and gloom from O.C. and video director Harold Urena.
There’s some wise words being spoken from the legendary emcee, as his vocals glide over the Gwop Sullivan-produced instrumental, but perhaps none resonate more strongly than: “If the beef ain’t life threatening, I walk f/ Think before I react now, but I’m not st.” There’s truth in that statement that goes beyond merely knowing when to walk away or stand up for yourself, and it becomes all too apparent when the final images “A New Dawn” fill your screen.
