25 (ft. KZ)

by Andrew MacGregor

Kojey Radical: “25 (ft. KZ)” - 5 mins 03s

This expansive Kojey Radical promo sees childhood innocence go up in flames, as the Hoxton-born rapper marks the passage of time on his latest single, '25'. Flitting between a halcyon living room and a grim industrial dystopia, director Tax Tron Delix matches Radical's reflective lyrics with an artfully composed nether realm.

As Radical aka Kwadwo Adu Genfi Amponsah intones "We weren't supposed to make it past twenty-five," the rapper and his entourage hold court in a warehouse of burned-out cars enveloped by greenery and Dobermanns standing guard. It's no place for a child, but there is a sliver of hope that purity can endure in the most dire circumstances.
