New Orleans’ native lyricist, Pell returns with a new visual for his recently released album cut “Skyfall.” The newest visual is chock-full of all the things that make Pell’s musical output a quality affair; quick wit, lyrical precision and an authentic sensibility that can be felt through the record and visual.
The Dominic Scott directed video begins with Pell and company in celebration. Draped in a home movie-style of aesthetic, Pell delivers his verse with relative ease; detailing his unavoidable stint away from home, purpose-driven grind and optimistic view. With gleaming charisma he raps, “I’m just stayin’ in my lane / Don’t you curse me Ricky Bobby / Fuck a 9 to 5 / I’m on that 9 to 9 / You tryna make a livin’ / I’m tryna stay alive.” The fun-loving spirit of the record and video is passed to Malik Ninety Five like a baton. Coming on the heels of Pell’s verse, Malik delivers a set of bars laced with dream-chasing ambition. Pell’s latest video allows for every viewer or listener to find something they can hold on too, “even if the sky comes falling down.”
“Skyfall” is Pell’s third visual accompaniment from his album, Gravity, released in late June. The NOLA rapper is a sturdy figure in today’s Hip Hop landscape continuing to deliver quality music while simultaneously evolving with each release.
