A$AP hinted at this video with Skrillex last Friday on twitter. The video for this wild banger was features some vivid images of the Dominican Republic, all the while showing A$AP and Skrillex getting wild out there.
JFK is an iconic figure in the US. From his style of politics to how he lived his life to his untimely death. Noted for her 50s and 60s Americana style, Lana Del Rey fits in perfectly in the JFK timeline so it’s only fitting that Lana used JFK’s iconic life as a backing for her video with A$AP Rocky, National Anthem. From re-enacting Marilyn Monroe’s Happy Birthday Mr. President, to re-enacting the clips of his assassination and the home videos that JFK has been known for this video has it all. A$AP as JFK and Lana as the lovely Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
This video’s got gold, the entire A$AP mob, topless chicks, and it’s all done in Paris. This track, with it’s screwed hook, drops off on LongLiveA$AP which will be coming out later this year.
To be honest, I’ve never really jumped onto the A$AP front as it’s never really appealed to me but I gotta say this Jim-E Stack bootleg is a trip-out waiting to happen. Especially with Jason Ano’s slowed down directors cut of the video that really gives effect to the bootleg. On another note…ladies grillz aren’t hot look at the girl in the video as a clear example of that.
Nice work sampling Lissie’s cover of Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness. Habits & Contradictions is out now, pick it up on iTunes. A$AP Rocky’s got a sold out show next Friday, it’s bound to be a good one.
