Video: Darnell Williams – Coney Island

Rising rap star Darnell Williams explores controversial topics using racy visuals in the provocative music video for his single “Coney Island,” an 80’s MTV-style format that is best described as Britney Spears meets 2 Live Crew meets NWA. Williams, who started his career as a film director, now directs his own videos including “Coney Island.” A continuously unfolding orgasmic experience in which activism, racism and police brutality collide with twerking girls, guns and street culture, this eyebrow raising video spreads widely across generations. Williams paired the power of his artistic imagination with casual shit talking over a bass-laden beat, which illuminates the rapper’s magnetic confidence.
