Bodega Bamz releases his new video/short film for “Billy Bats.” The song will appear on his Street Exec album, due on April 14th. Bamz says:
I did not want to do any performance videos for the promotion of my new album. Instead, I sat with Guy, who directed the visuals for the project, and we wrote scripts that developed Ohla and I as characters in a fictional world that were inspired by our favorite films. I am a fan of John Carpenter, Alfred Hitchcock, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Stanley Kubrick, although the shooting style of this piece was very Wong Kar-wai influenced. This music video for ‘Billy Bats’ acts as the sequel to our short film ‘The Streets Owe Me,’ starring Ohla, Cipha Sounds, Joell Ortiz, and myself, which is going to be released later this month.
