Watch PatricKxxLee’s Dreamy and Hong Kong-Shot Music Video For ‘RUN’

PatricKxxLee shares new visuals for his 2017 single 'RUN.'

South African rapper PatricKxxLee's latest music video for "RUN" was filmed in the streets of Hong Kong. Rocking an A Bathing Ape crewneck top, the rapper performs his multi-patterned raps while various graphical effects literally add color to the video.


The video is dreamy, changing backgrounds to create a an other worldly atmosphere. If you are familiar with PatricKxxLee's music, this video will make sense, as it reflects the beautiful chaos that is his life as depicted by his music.

"RUN" is light-hearted compared to the songs in his latest album, 2018's Nowhere Child, in which the rapper details his internal battles. "RUN" is drenched in egomania and sees him spit battle-ready raps over bouncy trap production.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
