Flyer Than The Rest of 'Em

Brand new video from Wale for his single “Nike Boots”. I haven’t published much about him in a while. After he signed to Interscope, I guess he put a lot of work into his forthcoming album as well as touring the country, building his hype. 

I like the video; shot at the Howard Homecoming, I think the black and white shots of people partying and posing for the camera combined with the added scratch effects represents the dichotomy of his raw swagger and elite taste. Since the W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E. disaster, his videos have come a long way and the DMV representative is poised step out of the underground. And he’ll probably be wearing some sick new shit when he does.
