Rapper A$AP Rocky introduced a live screening for new film Money Man in London last Friday following the completion of new album Cozy Tapes, Vol 1. The film accompanies two songs from the album, both recorded in Red Bull Studios London: Money Man and Put That On My Set featuring A$AP Nast and Skepta. The artists also star in the film, alongside Rocky and La Haine actor Saïd Taghmaoui.
The 12 minute video, directed by A$AP Rocky’s creative collective AWGE, tells a tragic story of a young girl called Rina, who is trapped in a world of crime and misfortune. Rocky (Money Man Flako) finds himself caught up in two very different relationships, one with his friend and business partner Money Man (Saïd Taghmaoui) and one with his love interest, Rina (Money Man’s sister).
The visuals offer a gritty yet surreal outlook on crime, the culture surrounding the lifestyle and effects on the people in it, with a drug being created with scorpion venom and butterfly wings being a massive focus and leading direction for the video.
