The Up-Turn

For one of my favorite tracks on my favorite hip-hop album of last year, Shabazz Palaces have enlisted the help of Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes to direct this video for ‘Are You… Can You… Were You? (Felt)’.  The video follows a girl as she confronts her mother in what is probably an argument about her clothes in the Ethiopian language Amharic (according to the top youtube comment).  Outside of the main story line, the video is full of traditional African images and other stunning shots.
