Jidenna Is a Chief, Cop, Worker & Victim in the New Video for Chief Dont Run

Posted on: August 22nd, 2016 | by:

Jidenna follows up the video for his afrobeats-influenced single “Little Bit More” with the somber visuals for “Chief Don’t Run.”

The new Alan Ferguson-directed video follows Jidenna from his humble beginnings, sleeping next to oven doors for heat, through his quick rise to fame.

The “emotion picture,” as Jidenna puts it, sees the singer/rapper showing off some acting chops as he cycles through roles as the ‘chief,’ police officer, construction worker and a victim of police harassment.

Still no formal word on when we can expect the drop of Jidenna’s debut album Long Live the Chief—but this should hold you over.
