Joey Bada$$ has a knack for pairing his tracks with simple, affecting visuals. Following on the the brutal police violence-themed video for “Like Me,” he’s shared a stark clip for another B4.DA.$$ cut, “Paper Trails.” The video opens with Joey himself walking down an empty path with garbage blowing around in the wind — a literal paper trail — but that’s only the precursor to a compelling story about the anxieties and pressures that money can exert on those who seek it. You can watch it in full here via Revolt.
