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.
