Kabaka Pyramid has dropped some spectacular new visuals for his tune “Never Gonna Be a Slave.” Directed by Norway’s Erik Christian King, the strikingly colorful video intersperses aerial shots of Kingston with clips of the roots artist dropping energetic verses on the streets and atop the iconic Office Centre Building, near the capital’s waterfront. Over the Cane River riddim from the prolific DJ Frass, the tune also spotlights the good things we’ve come to expect from the lyrically-gifted Pyramid, who chants down “Babylon” here with his silver-tongued flow.
