FULL SCREEN: A Tribe Called Red’s “Stadium Pow Wow” blends traditions old and new

PLUS: Raz Fresco rides through the neighbourhood, Rae Sremmurd lighten us all up.

- Jun 15, 2016
Full Screen is our rumination on the remarkable music videos of the day. Today, Raz Fresco swerves through the neighbourhood, A Tribe Called Red harmonize tradition with modernity, and Rae Sremmurd loosen up and have a bit of fun.

 A Tribe Called Red, "Stadium Pow Wow"

Tradition is important, but it doesn't need to define everything about you. A Tribe Called Red knows that. To the soundtrack of their thundering, triumphant production, the video showcases members of a First Nations community going about their business and doing what they love, whether it's skateboarding, boxing, or just having fun with friends, all while staying true to their roots.

This is the video treatment that the peak-era A$AP Rocky-channelling "Swervin In BAPE" deserved. Under the direction of ABSTRAKTE, Raz Fresco takes a ride through his neighbourhood on a gold plated BMX bike. Things are going well, until one of his golden monkey buddies runs into a bit of trouble. Dope visuals and a Tre Mission feature, what more can you ask for? 

Raz Fresco's Pablo Frescobar is out now.

Rae Sremmurd, "Look Alive"

Rae Sremmurd - Look Alive

Surprise! Rae Sremmurd songs are good for parties. The video for this dangerously catchy track is exactly what I'd expect to see either at one of their shows or at the club when their song comes on: lots of dancing, decadence, and general turning up. They're not taking themselves too seriously, so lighten up and enjoy it. Look alive.

The duo's SremmLife 2 is set for a June 24 release date via Ear Drummers/Interscope.
