J dilla and nas’ ‘the sickness’ video is a colourful, mesmerizing celebration

J Dilla’s The Diary was supposed to be released on MCA Records 15 years ago. But it didn’t end up dropping until earlier this month, a decade after the legendary producer’s death, via Mass Appeal.

One of the project’s highlights is “The Sickness,” featuring not just vocals from Dilla, but also Mass Appeal founder Nas. The video for the song grips your eyes the same way the track grabs your ears, as director Ruffmercy infuses colorful, kaleidoscopic imagery of the artists and city scenery.

In case you needed a reminder, no, Nas hasn’t lost it.
