Jay-Z isn’t the only MC making waves down in Cuba recently. Los Angeles rapper Aceyalone’s new video for the James Brown- (or Mystikal-)evoking consciousness burst “Leanin’ on Slick” was shot entirely in the communist island nation. Directed by Jason Goldwatch (Pusha T, Nas, Kid Cudi), the warm, inviting clip shows Aceyalone performing the title track from his upcoming album, due out May 28 via Decon, at a local bar with the regulars — and occasional subtitles. How do you say “superbad” en español?
