After debuting “Ride For Me” earlier this month, Young Thug and A-Trak have now debuted the accompanying video for their collaboration. Also joined by 24hrs and Falcons, the video was directed by skateboard legend Eli Morgan Gesner who used some rare skate footage dating stemming from the ’90s glory days of Zoo York, Supreme and Shut.
The video was premiered on NY Skateboarding earlier today along with an interview with Eli Morgan Gesner himself:
At this time, I had a bunch of my old 90’s skate footage loaded for the Harmony Korine episode of ‘Epicly Laterd’ Patrick O’Dell’s show on Vice. So, once I had the song, I was sitting at my desk bumping it, and going through the old footage, and was like… this is fucking sick! But more importantly, I realized that I could just take an old Hi-8 video camera and go to Young Thug… he doesn’t have to come to me! That’s when I knew the logistics of this all could work. But even more important, for me, is the Harold Hunter Foundation. When I saw Harold dancing to the song, and it synched up, I was like – Young Thug, you are going to help us with the HHF – Boom!
