Pusha T Tells A Powerful Story In “Pain” Video: Watch

Pusha T continues to push out thematic visuals as promotion for his ice-cold (in the good way) debut solo album My Name Is My Name (released October 8). The latest music video, for “Pain,” keeps up with the black-and-white trend he used for “King Push” and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Nosetalgia” clip.

Featuring vocals from hip-hop’s warbling hook-master Future, the video’s colorless editing is a contrast to the startling imagery that is highlighted throughout. The visual weaves in clips that show police brutality, Travyon Martin‘s fateful trip to the convenience store and civil rights demonstrations, creating a powerful message. The fact that Pusha’s face is never revealed from his silhouette makes it all the more haunting.

Watch it up top.
