PREMIERE: Al Rogers Jr. “Stylefree” Video
Lessons for the young and old
It’s not always easy to see the silver lining around tough times. It’s even harder to share the lessons learned in a memorable and non-confrontational way. Luckily Baltimore artist Al Rogers Jr. has done both for the sake of us all.
Today MASS APPEAL premieres the visuals for “Sstylefree,” directed by Marleaux Desire, which focus on Al sharing wisdom with a small kid. “The video for ‘Stylefree’ is a representation of my childhood,” the artist explains. “I was fortunate enough to always have OGs around growing up. They taught me how to maneuver in life. The song serves as a message I’m teaching my little homie like Sincere did Shorty in the film Belly.”
At the same time, he also rides around his neighborhood on a skateboard and says “What’s up” to everyone he sees. The smiles all around and cheery production by Drew Scott and Owen Ross all play into the uplifting message that Al aims to spread. But it’s not just about adhering to a code of conduct. It’s about being able to adapt to the given situation which is hinted at in the title of the song. Take a ride through Baltimore above in the new “Stylefree” video and stream Al’s BrightHeartedNigga EP right here. Swooz.
