Before Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” went viral and nearly a year after it was released, Baauer
and Just Blaze
released the track “Higher”. Well today the track, featuring JAY Z
, got an official release and video. The music video (titled a “short-film”) was directed by Nabil and features a gang of young kids in a make-shift ‘coming-of-age’ resistance story.
Though the video doesn’t feature any of the artists, it does keep the viewers attention the whole way through with visually stunning cinematography. In a tropical location a gang of kids form a band of warriors with home-made weapons mimicking their older, more experienced counterparts. In a final showdown against a drunken man, the kids man an unexpected move to take him down.
