Toronto rappers Rich Kidd, Tona, and Adam Bomb make up the hard-hitting hip-hop trio Naturally Born Strangers. Their 2014 full-length debut, The Legends League Presents: Naturally Born Strangers, conceptualized in collaboration with the cult street-wear brand The Legends League, earned NBS a Juno Award for Best Rap Recording. Now, after many months of careful post-production work, the video for “Jameson Ave,” a classic, boom-bappy cut off the project, is finally here.
Director RT! found twin inspiration and thematic prompts in the song’s hook—Catch me on the corner of Jameson Ave./ Drunk and disorderly, chasing ass—and in the long-gone era of classical painting and portraiture. You’ll definitely be entertained by various drunken partygoers, naked women, and even a marauding Rob Ford—all reimagined as baroque paintings come to life.
