Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross and DMX have shared a video for “Just in Case,” from the soundtrack of the upcoming television drama Godfather of Harlem. The show premiered yesterday on Epix.
The Daps-directed clip features the actor Forest Whitaker—who plays the show’s protagonist Bumpy Johnson—and brings the three hip hop artists back to a time in Harlem rife with mob wars and societal upheaval. The visual then segues to Ross and DMX exchanging bars at a table, intercut with scenes of gunfire and anti-racist protests pulled from the television show.
Swizz then leads a church choir in the chorus of the song: “Open up my window again / I can hear death calling my name / I swear to God things ain’t gon change / I keep a revolver wit’ your name.”
