Big Sean Heads to the Top Floor on ‘Dark Sky’

The video for the new song sees him boasting about his accent on a slow-moving elevator

Big Sean’s album Dark Sky Paradise drops today, and for the title track he’s chosen a pretty on-the-nose way to illustrate his rise to music stardom. The video for “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)” follows the rapper as he slowly ascends a tall (and not very well-lit) building while reflecting upon his slow but sure arrival into the upper-echelons of hip-hop. “Started from the basement made it to the skyscrapers,” he boasts in the hook, which might explain why he appears to be riding a freight elevator. Watch the video above.
