Almost a month and 10,000 plus views (and counting) later. Here we are. The video full of black gold. I've watched this video plenty of times and what makes the video dope is that it makes the song have more meaning and better. If a video is able to change the way how I heard a song initially that means the video is great. Award winning director and videographer Louis Quatorze paints a beautiful story of Mvstermind's journey through his pursuit of self employment through music. Scenes from previous MME videos such as Wave 2 (Westfall), 80-D, PWOAU are present in the present in this video to show the viewer the progression of Mvstermind. Only thing that hasn't change is Mvstermind loves to run in all his videos. Guess he running to the money and from the system in this video.
In those previous videos, Mvstermind worked for the man. Mali Moolah you could say is showing the shackles being removed from a man who always had vision. Now imagine that vision being held back for so long and it's finally free. You get Mali Moolah. In the video you see the symbolism of Mvstermind rapping in front of the Moolah Temple, closed down banks and in the Save-a-lot parking lot. Walking pass a checks cashed spot. Giving the song more depth and meaning. The ending of Mvstermind visiting his childhood home which is in ruins is some sad ass shit but the transition to the end shows the 80-D video ending now perfectly placed at the end of the Mali Moolah video. Mvstermind is smiling in the car and that shows the viewer that he's going to be okay. He's close.
Don't just take my word for it. Experience Black Gold. Mali Moolah below!
