Joining in Fergie and Will.i.am’s footsteps, Apl.de.ap, one of the original founders of the Black Eyed Peas, is stepping out for a solo album too! His full-length, AP3, is due for release early this year and he’s officially released the video for the AP3 track “Be.”
“Be” goes back to an early ’00s hip-hop sound, featuring a mix of Dr.Dre/Scott Storch keyboards and rugged New York rap percussion. The video for the track sets Apl.de.ap in the middle of a violent video-game landscape along with Canadian-Cambodian rapper Honey Cocaine and singer Jessica Reysono. Identical twin host of Miami’s Hits 97.3, Lulu & Lala also make a video-game world cameo.
Mixing reality with the virtual world, the video explores techonology’s impact on relationships. Watch as Apl.de.ap lives every gamer’s dream in the music video for “Be” below:
