Five years after Hurricane Katrina, the city New Orleans is still feeling the consequences of this tragedy. Showing his support for the citizens in Louisiana Ohio native Stalley drops his video for “Babblin’”. Here’s the scoop on the concept of the visual.
In commemoration of the upcoming 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (August 29th), Director and New Orleans’ own Brandan “BMike” Odums & 2-Cent present Stalley in “Babblin’” (produced by J. Rawls) off the Ohio native’s MadStalley: The Autobiography.
BMike was inspired to capture the current state of New Orleans by creating a visual accompaniment to “Babblin” because he felt the song unintentionally represented the existing dichotomy in his city so well. Today, tourists and residents alike enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer, but many never visit the ninth ward or acknowledge the remnants of destruction that remain.
The imagery in “Babblin” serves as a blunt reminder that the Katrina tragedy should not and cannot be forgotten, but through it all we must unite and rejoice to ensure life and the beautiful city of New Orleans live on.
