Taylor Bennett Robs a Record Store in New “Rock ‘N’ Roll” Video
As Taylor Bennett continues to prep his forthcoming Be Yourself EP, the Chicago rap artist has delivered the first visual off the project for the festive "Rock 'N' Roll" track.
The Andre Muir-directed video, produced by Naked Gallery, opens up with Taylor on the ground as slight chaos ensues. With little context, the "Gimmie a Call" rhymer follows his love interest into a record store, which they proceed to rob as the song plays out. Meanwhile the getaway driver, played by Zekur Stewart, falls asleep at the wheel while waiting, causing quite the commotion after a cop catches wind of the ordeal.
On Bennett's sole "Rock 'N' Roll" verse, the 22-year-old spits over a steel drum beat produced by frequent collaborator CEO BEATZ. "Am I wrong for thinking baby girl could be a lady?/Party on the daily and turn up in my Mercedes/If she really wanna' turn up then turn up and have a baby/I been waitin' on somebody to make a nigga go crazy," he spits.
In June, the indie label owner released the eponymous lead single for Be Yourself. The cover art, which serves as the album cover for the EP, appears to portray Taylor coming to terms with himself after coming out a day before his 21st birthday.
In January 2017, Bennett came out as bisexual publicly via Twitter, writing "Growing up I've always felt indifferent about my sexuality & being attracted 2 one sex & today I would like to openly come out to my fans. I do recognize myself as a bisexual male & do & have always openly supported the gay community & will keep doing so in 2017. #ThankYou."
