Ikey – When We Were Kings (Video)
The artist known as Ikey released a dope ass track titled Lord a few weeks ago, and I was thoroughly impressed with this track. This week, he released his new video When We Were Kings and I’m thoroughly impressed once again. The new video takes you to the essence of black heritage. Read more on the release below:
Born in Spanish Harlem, raised in Lagos, Nigeria, and based in the D.C. area of Maryland, rapper Ikey invades an abandoned building in D.C. and shares his testament of cultural awareness in a commanding visual for his Blvck Rose-produced single “When We Were Kings.” The video, directed by Xavia Inniss and premiered via Pigeons & Planes, acknowledges prolific African political leaders like Patrice Lumumba, while intertwining clips of Nigerian Afrobeat artist/human rights activist Fela Kuti. “Ikey’s ‘When We Were Kings’ represents his culture lyrically and sonically,” stated Pigeons & Planes, “and now the video makes it complete, with striking visuals and escalating intensity.”
