Wasiu Shares '2001: A Space Odyssey'-Inspired Video For "Outer Space"

Watch the visual for the Montreal rapper’s ‘MTLiens’ EP single here.

Wasiu released the visual to his MTLiens EP single, “Outerspace.” Directed by William Fradette, the video is inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Montreal rapper shares with The FADER, who premiered the release, on his southern-inspired sound:

Of course, MTLiens is a play on Outkast’s classic ATLiens album. Whereas ATLiens had a more welcoming atmosphere and southern hospitality to it, MTLiens is the polar opposite—just as MTL is geographically to ATL. Just as hip-hop was dominated by east coast/west coast in the mid-’90s and Atlanta was under that shadow, Montreal is under Toronto’s shadow from being recognized as a scene.
