The concept of the ride-or-die chic has been a theme in hip-hop anthems that feature R&B singers for a hot minute. U.K. Grime sensation Stormzy took the approach and applied it to the track “Cigarettes And Cush.”
The relationship goals track off of his Gang Signs & Prayer LP is a bit mellow when held next to his typical style which is usually very frenetic.
“Cigarettes And Cush” features an appearance from California songstress Kehlani, who may or may not be in the song’s video (you’ll have to watch and find out).
Ok, she’s not in the compelling video but the cinematic visuals(courtesy of director Daps) don’t suffer a bit without her as the crime-tale spins an interesting web.
