Bas Displays the Beauty of the West Coast in “Ricochet” Video
Bas and director Scott Lazer do a great job of highlighting some scenic beauty in the music video for "Ricochet." The New York rapper's latest visual brings the song to life with great shots of the Palos Verdes cliffs and the boardwalk at Venice Beach.
The video pairs up well with the mellow vibes of the track which includes a prominent contribution by British duo The Hics. Bas takes more of a backseat role on "Ricochet" while still adding some thoughtful rhymes to the mix.
"Innocence lost, it's never retained/It's never the same, it's never the same/Leave this world with some inspiration/I'll take the bait before a pure of gold/Come to grips with your intuition/Hear the whispers of your soul/Steer you down the road you're on/It's all your own," Bas raps.
The release of this music video coincides with the first date of Bas' Too High to Riot Tour as the Dreamville Records artist kicks things off tonight (June 3) in Miami.
