Video of the week: Pusha T – Pain ft. Future

Every week I will select a video that is either weird, beautiful or just plain genius.

I chose this video because it’s so simple but at the same time it has a really strong message. The black and white theme does the trick for this song. Pusha T is merely a recurring silhouette during a montage of scenes from racially tense moments of the past. With this video Push shows us the struggle Afro-Americans went trough and he links it to the present by referring to Trayvon Martin in the song.
