Nas – Cops Shot The Kid (Music Video)
Nas shares a brand new music video for his song titled Cops Shot The Kid. Nas released Nasir, his 11th album that was produced entirely by Kanye West. One of the standout tracks from the project was “Cops Shot the Kid.”
In November, a video for the song was featured in the Queens legend’s 16-minute visual album Nasir. Now the song gets its stand alone music video for viewers to see.
The clip, directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat, features Nas addressing the problem issues of police brutality in the inner city. The video starts off with the rap veteran walking on the beach with images of riots and a police officer throwing a kid violently on top of his cruiser.
In another scene, Nas rapping his poignant lyrics in front of his lamborghini with police helicopters flying above him. We also watch as a young black man is being chased by the police before he his fatally shot.
The video also features a cameo from Slick Rick, whose 1988 cautionary song “Children’s Story” is prominently sampled throughout.
Peep the visuals below.
