Intergenerational adventure: Rick Ross ft. Kwesta
Rick Ross got really busy these days. Not only has he managed to get through a huge project for his last album with Gunplay in a scary music video, he also has been collaborating with Kwesta on a totally different tone.
Originally designed solely by Kwesta as a nearly one year long project, « I Came I Saw » is a single celebrating differences between himself and his collaborative fellow artist and, generally speaking, the differences between ethnies and cultures.
The single promoting tolerance also got its own music video in which appears producer Makwa, who is actually behind some of Kwesta’s greatest hits.
Directed by Uncle Scrooch, the video depicts Kwesta and a bunch of friends in a Christ last-supper-like scene. Replacing wine with beer and the frugal meal with a stuffed pork, Kwesta attempts to talk large and loud, with the help of Rick Ross, to show through his neighborhood how common people keep it together.
The title surely resonates with the old legendary saying attributed to Caesar: « I came, I saw, I conquered ».
Showing his grandmother is no light choice either: Kwesta definitely wants to emphasize the struggle his people have been facing all along, even though, giving clues in his lyrics, things are getting better recently.
