Def Jam labelmates Jadakiss and Pusha T dodged a bit of potential controversy earlier on when their lyrical murder collaboration in “Hunting Season” arrived adjacent to Pop Smoke’s still-unsolved homicide.
With all the clarifications in order, the pair have since moved on to the visual treatment, with an opening public service announcement.
“The lyrical content should not be taken literally,” the message reads. “The content of this video is purely meant to express an artistic point of view in a tasteful manner. All props and violent imagery are merely used for the overall visual aesthetic and should not be taken seriously by any means.”
The Trey Lyons-directed video finds an ominous-looking Kiss sitting in a dark office while King Push spits his venomous bars from a desolate forest in the height of winter.
“Hunting Season” is the latest single from Jada’s fifth studio album Ignatius (which was also impeded by Pop Smoke’s death).
