N.E.R.D Release Intense Video for ”1000” Featuring Future
N.E.R.D is readying the release of their fifth studio album, No One Ever Really Dies, but first, we get more visuals. The Virginia group just dropped the new video for the Future-assisted song, "1000," after unveiling the track a couple days ago.
The at times shocking visual starts off with a disclaimer which reads: "N.E.R.D or Columbia Records do not support or condone violence in any shape or form. We only have internet access." The viewer is then bombarded with short, but intense, video clips of fights, riots and anti-establishment protests.
"What goes up must come down/What goes in must come out/You surrounded, dawg, come on look around/I was zen, but no not now/Holy shit it’s working, no more trail of tears/Holy shit it’s working, the prophecy is here," Pharrell rhymes over the balls to the wall track.
After a monologue from Mike Tyson, further in, the same dancer from the group's "Lemon" video featuring Rihanna takes center stage, backed by a small army. A mass coordinated dance routine pops off, complete with revving motorcycles and smoke machines delivering a thick, colorful smog.
Since reuniting at ComplexCon and announcing the new album, the group has also dropped a single featuring Andre 3000 titled "Rollinem 7's," and released the full tracklist for the upcoming LP, which also features Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, Wale, Ed Sheeran and more.
The album drops on Dec. 15.
