Last month, CunninLynguists made a triumphant return with the Rose Azura Njano album. Deacon The Villain, Kno and Natti’s first album in six years was yet another quality release from the trio featuring a bevy of dope songs. The Trizz-assisted “Gone” was a definite highlight though, so the group put together a video for the standout song.
“We wanted to illustrate the song’s gentrification themes visually while keeping the raw energy of the beat and hook,” Kno told HipHopDX. “We’d never really done a Wu-Tang-style posse cut video with everyone rapping at the camera all in the same frame and real rowdy, so that’s what we aimed for. Trizz has a ton of natural on-screen charisma too so it was easy. Him and Natti both, the camera loves those guys.”
