Musician, filmmaker, writer and producer Jeymes Samuel —best known as The Bullitts— returns with a visual for his most recent track, “They Die By Dawn.”
The song features Yasiin Bey (f/k/a Mos Def), Jay Electronica, and actress Lucy Liu, who narrates the tale.
More interestingly, the cinematic cut is only a portion of the effort. A short film, also titled They Die By Dawn, and a full-length album called They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories are also focal points of The Bullitts’ project.
The video is actually a compilation of footage from the movie. Expect a few familiar faces like Michael K. Williams, Erykah Badu, Isaiah Washington, Jesse Williams and Rosario Dawson to star in the forthcoming flick.
See the trailer for They Die By Dawn here. The LP is said to be due out before year’s end. Check out the treatment below.
