Watch: Statik Selektah - Beautiful Life feat. Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$
Two of New York’s finest rappers bro down with Statik Selektah.
Just a few days ago, we caught a glimpse into the lavish lifestyles of two top-notch rappers. Action Bronson (Queens) and Joey Bada$$ (Brooklyn) have teamed up with iconic producer Statik Selektah to craft a lively tune by the name of Beautiful Life. The clip is shot on the stunning waters of Croatia, where all three men performed as part of the Fresh Island Festival on the Island of Pag. It’s almost as though they made an impromptu decision to rendezvous in Europe as Action opens with "Shut the fuck up man…let’s just go to Croatia"…as you do.
The majority of the footage we bear witness to Bronson and Bada$$ spitting rhymes on the deck of a pricy yacht surrounded by babes. This is intercut with scenes of the boys dining out, having a ball on quad bikes, flogging it around on jet skis and splashing around in the Adriatic Sea. Not a bad day out I reckon.
Director Slick Jackson employs a screen overlay technique, which really helps capture your eye. If cool is what Jackson was aiming for, he’s well and truly nailed it. Beautiful Life is off Statik Selectah’s latest album Lucky 7 on Showoff Records, which you can stream in full HERE.
Once again these two Americans prove they’re at the front of the game, coming through with some fresh lyricism over Selektah’s jazzy beats.
It really is a beautiful life for some…
