Due to her introverted nature (and because music videos are an expensive luxury for an independent artist who doesn’t have any label investment), Noname has shied away from the spotlight since her musical talents (see: 2016’s Telefone and her collaborations with Chance The Rapper) attracted such attention. But today, the Chicago rapper finally bucks this trend and releases her debut video for “Blaxploitation,” taken from her Album-of-the-Year contender Room 25.
While Noname herself doesn’t make an appearance (maybe that part will never change), the Alex Lill-directed film takes cues from blaxploitation flicks as it follows a “monster baby” who unwittingly strikes fear into a city’s (white) residents à la Godzilla. The reality is rather harmless and innocent, though. Take that metaphor as you will.
Watch after the jump…
