It is with a sobering mix of sadness, reverence, love, and hope that I release the music video for Louis V the day after the unexpected and tragic loss of Virgil Abloh. Nov 29 was the set release date for this video for a couple of months now, and I am still working to process the eerie synchronicity of the release date aligning with the passing of the Black visionary without whom this song would not exist.
Virgil proved time and time again that in spite of the projections people cast on us, we, as Black creatives, are abundant, powerful, timeless, and priceless. This song + visual is dedicated to Virgil Abloh and his legacy, the future of Black creativity, and the perseverance of our ideas and love.
Rest in Power
