Butch Dawson plays a popular politician-to-be in his new video for “Ridin Round,” from his 2018 mixtape Swamp Boy.
Directed by Felix Abeson, the video follows Dawson, freshly dug up from a shallow swamp-side grave, touring Baltimore on a campaign trail as he runs for local office. He’s greeted with cheering crowds wherever he goes, but not everyone’s happy with his popularity.
“The visual for ‘Ridin Round’ highlights multiple concepts I’ve used to promote my artistry,” Dawson told the FADER, which premiered the clip. “It all ties in together showing the realities of being a leader.”
