Nana ft Reason 'LA Times' by Andrew Litten
Andrew Litten explores the paranoia and danger inherent in a chance encounter in his video for LA rapper Nana, featuring Reason.
Essentially Litten sets the scene in very cinematic terms - atmospheric black and white cinematography conjures up a long lineage of American filmmaking - while Nana and Reason tell their different sides of the story. It's all about the connections and codes of behaviour that endows an otherwise prosaic event with the potential to burst into deadly violence.
This intriguing and compelling work was co-written by Nana and Andrew Litten, and shot in Nana's hometown of Crenshaw, Los Angeles. "The video for LA Times focuses on a universal truth - fear, and how it can consume your mind if you let it," says Litten.
"Our concept is hinged on one small moment of Nana walking past the featured artist, Reason of TDE, in the dark, vacant parking lot of the Crenshaw Mall. As Nana weighs his options of how to get out of this small confrontation, Reason begs the audience to understand his side of the story, and how one can be a victim of circumstance."
