Harlem’s A$AP Rocky Shares Trippy New Music Video, ‘Kids Turned Out Fine’ (Video)

February 7, 2019

Harlem man A$AP Rocky has been on an experimental tip, of late. Last year, he dedicated his third album – emphatically christened Testing – to carving a new space for himself, one outside the well-worn, club-ready banger mode, which is the province of most contemporary rappers and trappers. Now, it’s obvious that Rocky’s more artistically questing impulses have also bled into his visual aesthetic. The Harlem rapper’s recent music videos, including the visual for ‘Kids, Turned Out Fine’, shared today, are incredibly vivid and coloristic.

This time, Rocky doubles down on the A$AP Mob‘s foundational leitmotif: The narcotic haze. Like the song, the Dexter Navy-directed visual unfolds with a gloriously languid, drugged-out splendor. Every frame is hyper-detailed; the pacing is irregular, alternating between slow and jumpy. And the scenes range from the quotidian, to poignant to bizarre reports Bandwagon.
