Machine Gun Kelly has previously teamed up with director Steven Caple Jr. for The Land, a movie which starred the Cleveland rapper himself.
Now, the two have joined forces again for the “Dopeman” music video, a song culled from the film's soundtrack.
“After working with Steven Caple Jr. on the movie The Land, it was only right that we collaborated on the 'Dopeman' video,” MGK says to Billboard, where the video first premiered. “I envisioned a cinematic video that I knew he could deliver, and the visuals he presented surpassed my expectations… I think we found the perfect blend of the streets and visual art.”
A cinematic triumph of a music video, “Dopeman” finds MGK working the streets with his crew of masked associates with a Purge-like feel to it all.
The Land released back in July 2016 via IFC films after an appearance at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival that January.
