Mick Jenkins - 'Truffles '

"Smuggler" director Andre Muir directs the music video "Truffles" for Mick Jenkins. What does upsetting the status quo look like? A black man fighting for their dignity? A black man being successful? A black man unapologetically existing? Those questions immediately create the visual of a black man standing in a white world… or more specifically a black man standing in the middle of a white suburb - the myth of Black suburbia. A Groundhog Day kind of story, where Mick wakes up each day as his neighborhood slowly gets replaced. All the activities are nods to things black people have been arrested for, whether it's smoking, running, or even trying to get back into your home.
