Watch Ras’ New ‘Melanin’ Video

Cap City’s Ras dropped this heater of a tune back in August 2020 and last week he shared the visuals for it. First of all, the joint is quite hard in delivery and definitely aims to establish a certain celebratory mood but with a message. The video was directed by Boss Neyo, Ras & Raiween, and starts off with Ras sipping on some “high-life” liquor with a beautiful lady aside him atop a moving green Mustang being driven by N’veigh.

This video is filled with some comic relief because cops then disturb the vibe before arresting Ras who then goes to court before eventually being released (through some bribery) and later sitting on what seems like a throne surrounded by queens… What we also like about this video is that there are social messages being spread out too as we see scenes of Ras surrounded by friends such as PdotO bringing awareness to social issues that exist in SA such GBV & Xenophobia.

The video then all ends with a little girl watching Ras on a screen, who is sitting on the throne we mentioned, speaking on points such as independence, freedom, and recognition amongst other things.
