AZ, Raekwon and Prodigy Team Up for the New ‘Save Them’ Video [WATCH]
Before the clip even starts, you hear portions of a speech by Minister Louis Farrahkan and then in old footage, you see him being greeted by a bunch of people. After that the three rappers appear and start to deliver their verses.
While AZ spits, there's scenes of a skirmish involving New York City police officers, some burning roses and ticking clocks to symbolize that time is running out for people to make improvements within their communities.
Afterwards, Rae steps to the camera, sporting a black shirt and a simple diamond necklace. You also see a quick flash of Ghostface Killah in the background, but you'll have to look fast or you'll miss him.
From there, Prodigy comes in dressed in black, while rocking a pair of tinted yellow glasses and spits his menacing rhymes.
Back in April, when AZ first dropped the "Save Them" single, he chopped it up with HipHop DX about the song and its actual meaning.
"It's about sellouts," he explained. "This is our culture, and it took us decades to build this culture right here, and it's being taken advantage of and being used as a fast food situation for people to make a quick dollar. I've been on the low for a few, but everywhere I go it feels like I just put a record out, because the love is still there and they say 'You gotta save us from this, and I say from what?' They say 'There is no substance and the babies still listen to music. You gotta save us.'"
