Hats off to West LA rapper, by way Nigeria, Louis King. Louis has been rapping for his whole life, and has been touring with the Outlawz since 2014. Rest in peace to Bruce Washington aka Hussein Fatal who has recently passed in a car accident.
Not only is Louis King a rapper, but he is also signed to Adolescent Content as a director, story teller and creative artist, and has won a few prestigious award. Louis was the recipient for the “Best Film” and “Best Documentary” at the “Philadelphia International Film Festival in 2009.
“Money A Drug,” his latest music video, is a testament to why it wasn’t time for his clock to stop ticking. Considering Louis‘s accolades, does it come to us at any surprise that “Money A Drug” was not only written, but directed by Louis King himself? Color is not even needed to make the visuals for the video extremely compelling and moving. The black and white cinematography take us through a man and woman’s turbulence, initiated by the man loosing his daughter. The music video ends up being a “use me and I use you” kind of tale, with a tragic ending. Everyone in the video is guilty, but who’s to judge their circumstances?
Tragically complimenting the end of the video, is a a passage from the Bible. “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
A complete must see.

Respect to Louis King, who is indeed a king in his own rights.
