Rapper David Sabastian has just dropped the music video for his insightful and incisive track America On Fire, and we spoke to him about the making of the video.
The track, and the video, take aim at the state of America as it is today, and there are a lot of blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments, so it's great to have David's explanation for why he made the choices he made in the video.
As David explains, he started with a napkin drawing for the idea of the video, and it blossomed from there. It's one of his favourite videos that he's ever made, and it's easy to see why.
The video looks at the issues plaguing American society at the moment, from the economy to police brutality. Each frame of the video was carefully considered by David, and the symbolism packed into the clip is powerful.
While the video tackles heavy concepts, there were some funny stories from the shooting of the video. To make the video, David had to borrow Kelis' sheep (which seems too good to be true). That's one for him to cross off his bucket list.
Check out the interview below. You'll gain a new appreciation for the video after checking out his breakdown of the video, so you'll want to check this out.
