Fabolous + Dave East – Summertime/Sadness | Music Video

Fabolous 02.04.2016ANDREW


Fabolous returned to his 2015 Summertime Shootout ways with a mini-movie for “Summertime/Sadness”. Featuring Harlem native, Dave East, as his co-star, the video is a play on John Woo’s 1997 action film Face/Off.


The track opens with what appears to be banjo, very quaint and country for a rap track. Then it gets serious, like a movie soundtrack. Then the sung hook eventually appears, and the rapping and backdrop is bleak.


The video, directed by Gerard Victor, very much follows the aforementioned film. The two rappers get their face off, and swap them during surgery. They are then back to back, only a wall separating them, exchanging words before the final confrontation, via gunfight.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
