Following the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore project Room 25 earlier this year, eclectic Chicago rapper Noname treats her fans to her long awaited, first ever music video for “Blaxploitation“.
With Alex Lill in the director’s seat, he brings the overtly political yet jazzy groove of a song to life in quite a humorous manner. The B-movie inspired video (hence it’s title) does not feature Noname at all, which isn’t a surprise. Rather, it depicts a giant toddler walking through what appears to be Chicago, bearing visual inspiration from the classic Godzilla movies.
It seems like the toddler is feared as more of a threat than she actually is as she makes the televised news with much hysterics. It turns out in the end that they’re playing in a child-sized city made of cardboard boxes
Room 25, Noname’s follow-up to her 2016 debut mixtape Telefone, arrived back in September. It features fellow Chi-town natives Saba, Ravyn Lenae, Adam Ness as well as St. Louis rapper Smino and others.
