Looking at 2019 as a whole so far, ScHoolboy Q’s Crash Talk remains one of the premiere releases of the year. Few, if any, albums have brought forth such fascinating, well-executed storytelling, and even further, beyond the music, few albums have seen such advanced and vivid creative direction. With this, Q is back once again to add yet another dimension to the album in the brand new video for “Dangerous.”
While this song may be one of the slower and shorter cuts on the album — almost taking on the form of an interlude — there’s no doubt that it’s sun-soaked, ominous aesthetic acts as the perfect backdrop for Q’s chilling lyricism. Cudi’s vocals seep into the fabric of the song in a way that can’t help but give you the chills, and the instrumental effortlessly paints a snapshot of Q’s world with each successive note.
As one might be able to tell, I absolutely love this song, and the complementary visuals certainly didn’t disappoint.
Featuring a quick shootout scene and a subsequent drive-by, this striking music video brings listeners in on the true impact of the “kill or be killed” mentality. Just like that, lives are lost, and Q and Cudi are sure to tell the story in the most honest light possible.
That said, I could go on about this one all day long, but the truth is, “Dangerous” can only be fully appreciated if experienced for yourself. Click play below and if you haven’t already, stream CrasH Talk here!
