Kemba Is Surrounded by Human Puppets in “Hallelujah” Video
With visceral rhymes and a high-powered perceptual lens, Kemba is one of the most talented artists in the N-Y. He showcases those two attributes once again in his new video for "Hallelujah," a cut from his acclaimed Negus album.
Directed by Diego Cruz, the visual for "Hallelujah" finds Kemba spitting as he's surrounded by human puppets, who continually get their strings pulled by something they probably don't even quite understand themselves. He's also a puppet.
Kemba, who famously received a cosign from Kendrick Lamar, can be found sitting in a room filled with the human puppets as they're strung along.
"Father, Father, our personas gone on forever/The grown-ups ain't show no effort so homies don't know no better/Of course we gon' go retarded/Our fathers were tarred and feathered," an impassioned Kemba spits over an ethereal instrumental.
After a big 2017, Kemba is off to do some big things throughout the rest of this year, and his new vid is just one sign of that.
Check out the visual for "Hallelujah" below, and when you're done, peep his video for "Caesar's Rise," which is a track XXL exclusively premiered last year.
