Earthgang Releases Music Video for 'American Horror Story'
The Atlanta duo EarthGang have given their Ghetto Gods track "American Horror Story" a creepy visual treatment, debuting an unsettling music video that elaborates on the themes of Black trauma touched upon in the song's lyrics by WowGr8 and Olu.
The video is also dubbed “The Ghetto Gods Show,” and In the music video, EarthGang's lyrics are brought to life with powerful results by illustrating the dark and seedy history of Black America.
“I mean for real all this money we got and we still can’t help Flint/Don’t get me wrong I still pull up to Lennox to floss on a bitch yeah/But I hate seeing my n-ggas get shot up that shit don’t make sense,” Olu raps as cops wander around behind him and disrupt his daily life.
"American Horror Story" is the third track off EarthGang's long-awaited fourth album Ghetto Gods to be accompanied by a music video, following "Amen" and "All Eyes On Me" which went viral before the album dropped on February 25. The album features JID, J. Cole, Baby Tate, Ari Lennox, Nick Cannon, among others.
Dreamville's signees are preparing to embark on their Biodeghettable Tour beginning April 20 with support from Mike Dimes. It will run across North America through June 23 and will also be done in collaboration with Pigeons & Planes, who will explore each city on the tour to find a local act to serve as another opener.
