Nas is taking on police brutality with his powerful video for “Cops Shot the Kid.”
The frantic and jarring clip loosely follows the stories of two black men: one gets chased down by two officers, and the other is held down on the hood of a car. It seems that neither makes it out alive.
The video also features a cameo from Slick Rick, whose song “Children’s Story” was sampled for “Cops Shot the Kid.” Kanye West, who features on the song, doesn’t appear in the video.
“Cops Shot the Kid” was taken from Nas’ 2018 album, Nasir. Watch his new video below:
