Bas “Tribe” Video: J. Cole and Dreamville Rapper Hit Lil Haiti
Milky Way season is officially here. Yesterday (Aug. 21), Dreamville's own Bas continued promotion for his forthcoming album by releasing his new video for "Tribe," a J. Cole-assisted single set to appear on Milky Way.
In the Andrew Nisinson-directed visual, Bas and Cole hit up the streets of Miami's Lil Haiti for a day of kicking back with the locals. Soaking up the sun, we see the two mingling as the day's adventures unfold.
"Tribe" itself features a hook from Bas and a melodic bridge from Cole, and they both hit the track with some free associative lyrics about romance, their come-up and more.
"Can't spoil time on nickeling and diming/I got me a girl, she don't want no diamonds/
A daily reminder to holler at God/Like where did you find her?" Bas spits on the track.
For his part, Cole spends more time spitting about his journey to and through rap superstardom. "God shuffled the cards, dealt me a hand with impossible odds/Put an obstacle course up/Look, and I conquered them all (conquered them all)/With minimal effort I'm fresher than sock in your drawer (fuck)/They spinning my records so heavy, I'm topping the Forbes," he raps.
Peep the visual for "Tribe" below. Watch Bas' video for his A$AP Ferg assisted Milky Way single, "Boca Raton," when you're done. Milky Way drops this Friday (Aug. 24).
