The music video for the latest single ‘So Many Pros’, off the rap and hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg’s upcoming album, BUSH, has just been released.
Directed by Francois Rousselet, the video draws influence from the ‘Blaxploitation’ films of the 1970s and is a clear homage to these urban action movies. Rousselet wanted to portray Snoop Dogg as a ‘black James Bond’, and the result is a visually dazzling and colourful assortment of moving movie posters, with Snoop acting out a variety of characters.
The promotional artwork in particular evokes the iconic imagery and font of Robert Rodriguez‘s 2010 blaxploitation hit, Machete.
‘So Many Pros’ follows ‘Peaches N’ Cream’, which was the first release from the upcoming album which was produced by Pharrell Williams and features an array of guest artists such as Charlie Wilson, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Stevie Wonder, and T.I.
BUSH will be available for purchase on May 8 through Doggystyle/Sony Music.
