Since his show-stopping BET Hip Hop Cypher performance in 2015, North Carolina emcee Jackie Spade has had a steady output of new music. Seven projects (mixtapes and EPs) later, the rapper is set to release his long-awaited proper debut album Aurafication on Friday, February 22nd, 2019 via Common Cents Media Group. Today (1/15/2019), Spade shares the music video for the album’s DJ Slim-produced lead single “MIA.”
Produced and directed by Seven Foot Giant, the video stars models Magyn Kennedy, Oliwia Pawelczak, and Derrick Black, and excludes Spade to bolster the “MIA” concept. The movements and transitions were inspired by Half Alive’s “Still Feel.”
