As a song, “They Die By Dawn” was already ill. The Bullitts aka producer/musical renaissance man Jeymes Samuel laid down a spaghetti western soundtrack that worked well for Yasiin Bey and Jay Electronica. But the Multitasking Samuel didn’t stop there as the video is bigger than the average music video. It’s a cinematic presentation that mimics the song itself and features a cast composed of Erykah Badu, Lucy Liu, Michael K. Williams, Isaiah Washington, Jesse Williams and Rosario Dawson.
The Bullitts They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories is due out later this summer.
