CAFECITA (Music Video) – MAYA HUYANA
This visual, an accompaniment to a song from her 1991 EP from earlier this year, reminds me of a thought about the concept of “coffee” I’ve been trying to wrap my head around. For some of us in the hip-hop culture…it’s not necessarily the thing that caffeinated or woke you up, it’s the thing you enjoy in the morning. Coffee is being referred to not for it’s function but for the pleasure we derive from it- this piece is like coffee in the sense that it’s nice to enjoy it as the day begins.
Stitching personal manifesto with strong messages about social justice over this lovely boom-bap instrumental from EniGmaviLLe, the video was shot by @Foxsta , @YahCreates & @LouiseEugeneLee and edited by Yah.
