Today, Bas released music videos for “Live For” and “Penthouse”. Including these two most recent ones, he has released music videos for 9 of the 12 songs on Too High To Riot. From the looks of it, the emcee might produce visuals for every song on his album, which doesn’t happen often in the music community, and is unheard of in the hip-hop community. The most recent artist in any genre to accomplish this task is Justin Bieber, who did it for Purpose.
Both videos are mysterious with no real obvious plot. “Penthouse” shows multiple Bas‘s exploring the city, while “Live For” features the emcee wandering around the woods. The videos are available here:
Bas has released six projects since 2011, but Too High To Riot has been by far his biggest success. The album included fellow Dreamville emcee J. Cole, and peaked at number 6 in US rap. The project has been the highlight of Bas‘s career so far, significantly growing his fan base in the process. After the successful album, Bas and company departed on the Too High To Riot Tour, which went through 26 cities throughout the United States. The documentary of the tour is available on YouTube.
