Atlanta independent grinder Pill released the video for his song "It's All On Me" yesterday. Directed by Motion Family, it features several of the scenes CL photographer Dustin Chambers captured of their shoot for the recent cover story on Atlanta video directors. The shots of Pill walking down Peachtree St. and performing in front of the Fox Theatre atrium are interspersed with scenes from a short film featuring Pill titled Pretty Happy that Motion Family entered into last year's 48-Hour Film Project in Atlanta. Known for producing gritty, documentary-style rap videos, Motion Family somehow got stuck with the "romantic" category in the filmmaking contest. But based on the footage, directors Diwang Valdez, David KA, and Sebastian "C-Bass" Urrea still managed to squeeze some blood and street realism out of it.
But it is cool to see Pill present a different side of his artistic self on the digital canvas. His music has always been thoughtful and covers a range of emotion. And while his videos have certainly evoked rage and even introspection in the past, I don't recall him ever showing himself in a romantic light. After all, this is the guy who had the "Trap Goin' Ham," courtesy MoFam. When I talked to the directing trio for the story a couple of months ago, they mentioned that because Pill was one of the few rappers they knew with prior acting experience, he was a shoe-in for the lead role in Pretty Happy.
