Watch Dope Saint Jude And Her Friends Living Their Best Lives in The Music Video For ‘Liddy’

Watch the South African rapper's latest carefree music video.

Dope Saint Jude's new music video takes you through a day in the life of the rapper and her friends. The video is teeming with character, as the crew gets up to the kinds of shenanigans friends engage in when they are together—from being naughty at a grocery store, causing a scene on the train, and hitting the club, where they end up beating up a man who tries to force himself into their space as they have fun.


"Liddy" is a song from Dope Saint Jude's latest EP, Resilient, which was released in 2018. The 5-song project saw the MC take a different direction sonically, opting to rap over big electronic beats that suit her style and message of owning your narrative and just being the best version of yourself.

"Liddy" is the second single from the EP. Last year, the MC released the explosive "Grrrl Like," which was accompanied by a video that showed her with a gang of women living their best life once again. Even though the videos have different concepts, the underlying narratives are related.

Watch the music video for "Liddy" below, and stream Resilient underneath.

I am not Your Negro captures Baldwin's reflections on the assassinations of his three close friends, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers, in the height of the civil rights movement. It also draws on Baldwin's lived experiences as a Black man in America who lived from 1924-1987 and his active writing career that spanned over four decades.
