Magestik Legend of the once covert rap crew, The Black Opera, recently posed the question “why can’t we be political using trap music?" "Rich Like You," the infectious standout from the group's lauded "The Great Year" LP, does just that, and today, we get the song's official visual treatment. Directed by Andy Madeleine, the third set of visuals from The Great Year flaunts an irreverent bounce, but in true TBO form, a message is packed between the BPMs.
The dark and menacing, yet fun and "fly" music video for "Rich Like You" follows the summer releases of solo albums from both founding TBO members Jamall Bufford and Magestik Legend ("Freedom Is" and "Legend Has It").
Be on the lookout for The Black Opera's forthcoming compilation album "Protect The Code," set to drop on Black Friday. Thank you to our friends at WatchLOUD for the world premiere of "Rich Like You." Be sure to check out their 'Verse Behavior' feature where The Black Opera breaks down lyrics from the song.
