The sincere honesty of this visual makes for a refreshing video.
6lack‘s J. Cole-assisted track “Pretty Little Fears” was an obvious standout on his renowned project East Atlanta Love Letter. That comes as no surprise, as the record is filled with lyrical expertise that exposes the most hidden parts of the genuine emcees. Now, Bear has tapped his visceral counterpart for the release of a visual treatment to accompany the intimate hit.
The video takes place in a variety of settings, from basketball courts to carnivals, but consistently portrays the like-minded artists conveying warmhearted messages to their significant others. In a time where hypermasculinity is overwhelmingly the norm in hip-hop, the sincere honesty and humbleness of “Pretty Little Fears” makes for a refreshing experience. Watch the official video below.
