Following the release of Pusha T‘s Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, the rapper and G.O.O.D Music president has released the video for recent single M.P.A. The track features A$AP Rocky, The-Dream and Kanye West, and all except West star in the retro video. The clip, directed by Shomi Patwary, follows the artists through a 1970s-style low budget (and quite possibly soft porn) film set, with dim lights, outdated faux-glam set furniture, celebratory drinks, a plethora of gorgeous women and of course, the rappers themselves.
West’s absence is cheekily referenced in an on-screen text message received by one of the women, asking “is Kanye on set yet?”
