New Orleans rapper Alfred Banks drops his earnest new visuals to his single “The Funeral Of Orlandas.” In the video, Banks recreates the memorial of his deceased older brother Orlandas Banks. The track is off his album The Beautiful, out Monday 20th March.
“For me, seeing the final product of this video is like a culmination of all the hard work it took to shoot this bad boy. The production Company Ghostmonster out of NOLA took this song to the next level. They took something that means the world to me and made it epic for the people” – Alfred Banks
On the album, each song serves as an individual chapter examining the development of schizophrenia in Alfred himself. Though he doesn’t suffer from the illness in real life, the album’s concept serves to illustrate the steps in the disease in an effort to educate others about how schizophrenia can manifest itself.
