At this point, it should go without saying that Alex Wiley videos are in a category of their own. Incomparable to most videos being released within the hip-hop industry, Wiley’s video backlog proves that he’s looking for something more than the monotony of girls, cars and money that one often thinks of with respect to rap videos.
In his latest video for the Odd Couple-produced track “Ideas (Adderall),” Wiley and Visual Mecca follow suit in an eclectic visual foray that can be described as frantic and stimulating, to say the least. Featuring everything from pills falling from the sky, to early 2000s NBA clips, to a scene from Jerry Springer all the way to what appears to be a 1950s striptease, a description like the aforementioned really doesn’t do the video justice.
After watching “Ideas,” circle back and revisit Wiley’s Village Party here.
