The Dallas rapper attaches visuals to his dark cut.
Last month, Curtis Mayz teamed up with producer Magix and took Destiny's Child's "Jumpin" and flipped it to create "5:38 AM."
The result was a menacing banger that you're sure to keep on repeat after one listen, abd this weekend, Mayz premieres the accompanying music video.
Directed by Ciara Bonafice, it's a successful attempt at capturing the grit that cloaks the track.
"With the visual I wanted to portray the everyday struggle each of us have where we have to balance good with evil, we have to play mind games with ourselves sometimes to get certain results," he tells Pigeons & Planes. "In the video, the director does a great job in executing this struggle. As far as the aesthetics and vibe, we went after lighting & a feel similar to the classic Belly the movie, where this similar abstract challenge is prevalent throughout."
