A few months after dropping the hot video for MS2, K.O returns with the gawdly visuals for his single, Swagganova. This one comes from his second album, Skhanda Republic 2 (SR2).
K.O did not surprise us in the latest video for his joint Swagganova just because it is, in many senses, his style. With this video, he is trying to identify himself as the swag “go-to” guy and we can even see it in his previous video for MS2.
The swag is not necessarily linked to the clothing but his whole demeanour. K.O seems to be shedding the typical rapper uniform of T-shirts, jeans and kicks. He wants to look mature and polished.
There is something about this joint that reminds me of the K.O from about 4 years ago, during his Caracara days. The audacity he had back then to debut a sound so fresh is what I am getting from Swagganova. And to be honest, it doesn’t sound too bad. I just wish that the video was just as daring.
The video was primarily shot on location with a few studio shots. The street scenes are dope though, especially when he is riding around the streets with his gang. The thing we loved most about the video is that everybody is rocking the Skhanda Republic gear. That was dope. It may just be the aspect ratio of the video but there was something uncomfortable about watching it. Other than that, the quality and the direction of the video is alright.
Peep the video below!
