Kamasi Washington Debuts 'Street Fighter Mas' Video
Kamasi Washington has this week released the video for his current single 'Street Fighter Mas'.
The video includes cameos from famed street fighting legends Gootecks, Combofiend and Battlecat. Inspired by a love of the classic game, the video sees Washington journey through L.A. to claim the title of champion from Combofiend.
Video director, A.G. Rojas says: "I love inhabiting Kamasi's world, and Street Fighter Mas was an opportunity to take a left turn and explore the surreal qualities of that world. It was a true labour of love for everyone involved, coming from a desire to interpret the cinematic qualities of the track into something equally unpredictable, familiar, absurd, and ultimately triumphant."
The highly anticipated debut album, Heaven and Earth, is released in full on 22nd June. In celebration, Washington is playing an intimate hometown show at The World Stage in Los Angeles today (21st June). The show will be streamed live through his Facebook page on Boiler Room.
