The much anticipated music video offering for DJ Khaled’s single ‘No New Friends’ has finally hit these internet streets. The track accompanied by frequent collaborators Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne, brings us a visual that is a homage to yesteryear, 1996 to be exact.
The crew is dressed in the finest threads of the day, consisting of Dada, Fila, and many variations of baggy denim and sweatsuits. Stylistically, they got it almost all right, with the exception of usage of a Motorola cell-phone from the mid-80s, as opposed to an updated flip model from the mid-90s.
The video is a bit of a homage to rap videos of the 90′s, including vignettes that nod to 2Pac’s ‘I Get Around’, Missy Elliott’s ‘The Rain’ [Supa Dupa Fly], Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s ‘Get Money’, and more. Lil Wayne’s style of dress is a bit of a throwback to his Hot Boyz days, which is fun to see.
