Jordan Peele’s new racially-charged horror film Get Out is finally out as of last week, and it has received an accompanying track from burgeoning rapper Rome Fortune. The video, directed by Scott Weintrob sees Rome go in hard over a spooky, rolling trap beat which resonates with the style of Peele’s film to perfection. The former Four Tet collaborator lays down some slick, eery bars whilst hallucinating and surrounded by a host of creepy-looking people, as you can see above.
It’s an innovative way of promoting new films, with the visuals noticeably enticing people into watching the movie – there’s an array of YouTube comments proving as much – so it’s clear it was effective in its purpose. Get Out, the film not the track, hit theaters last Friday, February 24. Watch the trailer for the movie below.
Rome is still conjuring up his album Beautiful Pimp 3, but if you can’t wait till then, listen to his second single off the album, “Beyoncé, Kanye” below.
