Smino has shared a trippy video for his new song, “MLK Dr.”
The offering was released on Martin Luther King Jr Day in honor of the late civil rights icon. The animated clip features a cartoon version of Smino who runs into an alien version of the renowned reverend. Smino helps out Dr King, whose space car has suffered a flat tire, and the pair drive off through the sky before landing at Martin Luther King Drive on the moon.
“I just seen a Martian right off Martin Luther King / Said his luvercraft just caught a flat, like, bitch, just fix the streets / That’s why I hate comin’ down to earth, I couldn’t do shit but agree,” Smino spits.
“MLK Dr” is the rapper’s first release of the new year, following his remix of Thundercat’s “Dragonball Durag” with Guapdad 4000. In 2020, Smino released a surprise mixtape, She Already Decided, as well as an EP called High 4 Da Highladays.
