THE DISCUSSION:

Just when we thought music videos lost its creativity, rapper Futuristic teams up with director Jakob Owens to create this fun filled, emoji-based 4 minute piece of art for the single “Bodied (#OneTake)”.

The track features Devvon Terrell, who lyrically and visually fits perfectly on “Bodied (#OneTake)”. Both rappers showcase a closet of flows and build enough hype in the video, which makes the duo impossible to look away from.

THE ARGUMENT:

I love the creative process that all parties materialized into this single. It’s promoted as the video that ‘brings emojis to life’ and there’s no questioning that.

In a futuristic sense I hope that this provokes other directors to follow the trend of personal creativity as opposed to conforming to what the mainstream desires. In other words, be the trend setter, don’t be the follower.
