Mos Def also appears in Nabil directed video
Kanye West and Travis Scott appear in the video for ‘Piss On Your Grave’, a song lifted from Scott’s latest album ‘Rodeo’.
The video was directed by Nabil (Foals, Frank Ocean) and also features a cameo appearance from a masked Yasiin Bey, formerly Mos Def.
Director Nabil told The Fader about making the video, saying, “It was shot in in the countryside an hour outside the city, closer to CDG [Paris, Charles De Gaulle airport]. There was a castle and by the castle there were some beautiful woods. It fit with the vibe and what they were wearing. We came up with the idea of shooting it the day before.
“There was a good vibe and it was super chill,” he added. “It was pretty sporadic – it wasn’t so premeditated. We just had fun with it.”
Although the song belongs to Scott, at one point it was reported that West was recording a song with the same title alongside Sir Paul McCartney. West’s lyrics on the track include the lines, “I use your face as a urinal, then do the same at your funeral.”
Meanwhile, West recently donated to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, after Clinton said she would not rule out appointing West as her Vice President.
Clinton said, “I might want to give him some additional experience so he’s got, on all the other things he’s done on his résumé… some kind of envoy role or something he could point to… I would not rule out anybody for Vice President”.
