Joey Bada$$- "Like Me (feat. BJ the Chicago Kid)" (Music Video)

This may be the best music video I have seen from Joey Bada$$ so far. He has revealed the video for his BJ the Chicago Kid-assisted track, "Like Me," off his debut studio album– B4.DA.$$. The video addresses recent conflicts between African-Americans and the police and I think Joey did it in a creative and perceptive way. Check out the video above and view Joey's comments about the video below. Enjoy.


“In the video, the hot-headed guy, he gets killed by the police with a gun in his hand,” Joey tells Mother Jones. “And me, the cool guy, who is away from all the violence, I still end up being mixed in the loop—just being a victim because of my surroundings or where I’m from. I pray that there is hope. But even the fact that I have to dream like that is what’s disturbing. My message is that it can happen to any one of us.”
