J Cole knows talent when he hears it...
Today, we get the new visual from Bas for a single titled "Pinball II" alongside Cory C.
The song was released back in April, however, the video is important to the Queens, NY Emcee:
The music video, directed by Andrew Nisinson for The Friends, tells the story of several young men who face varying degrees of adversity and violence, ranging from a domestic dispute to a potentially fatal shooting. The images of bloodshed paired with shots of a family dinner table surrounded flowers provides an intense contrast throughout. There are also obvious religious themes injected into the video—specifically the idea of death and rebirth—as well as references to Bas' experiences growing up in Jamaica, Queens as a Sudanese immigrant.
Hope you get the message. Watch below!
