Joey Fatts + Vince Staples – Farrakhan | Music Video

Joey Fatts 16.04.2016ANDREW


Joey Fatts and Vince Staples come with their new video for “Farrakhan”, and it was originally released as one of the standout songs on Joey Fatts’ March mixtape, I’ll Call You Tomorrow.


The audio opens with foreboding xylophone, inverting what is often a child’s toy into something quite menacing and intimidating. The raps are underpinned by rattling drums, though perhaps not totally in the vein of the Southern rap they are usually associated with.


“Farrakhan” receives its visuals from director, Yamï. It is definitely a blockbuster for something barely three minutes long. In tribute to Farrakhan, bow ties and all, of black nationalist Nation Of Islam fame, this video rails against law enforcement and what is considered entrenched white society. It ends with officers taking advantage of a black woman being shot.

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.
