"Classic Man" Jidenna recently released a visually-striking music video for his song "Long Live the Chief." Check it out above, via YouTube.

In this music video, we see a nearly perfect marriage between the song's distorted beat and the visual effects. You've gotta respect the concept for the video, which consists entirely of Jidenna rapping his way through a funeral processional. There's also something very captivating about Jidenna's onscreen persona, which goes to amplify his clever flow.

Among the best lines heard in the rap:

Elders saying everything's a nail to a hammer
And niggas can’t spell but we know our Instagrammar

Along with making presidential references to Obama and Bill Clinton, Jidenna also name drops his Wondaland label-mate Janelle Monae.

The Eephus is now available on Amazon (CD, MP3).
