A Naked Stripper Stars In Lupe Fiasco's "Adoration of the Magi" Music Video: Watch
I guess her name is Magi and it’s her body that is being adored?
Lupe Fiasco has just unveiled the music video for “Adoration of the Magi”, the newest single from the rapper’s “Tetsuo & Youth” album, online on YouTube. Directed by Alex Nazari, the video looks like it was shot using an iPhone in vertical position. (hence the chunky white borders to the left and right). Have we seen an MV like this in the past? Can’t really recall right now.
The “Adoration of the Magi” clip shows no scenes featuring Lupe Fiasco (he’s now skipping his own video shoots? what's up with that?) but follows a regular day in the life of an incredibly sexy stripper. We get a good look at her pre-performance preparation backstage, and also close-ups of her sensual naked work with the pole before the eyes of tens of men. However, as the camera zooms out, we find out there’s also a random group of people holding out infant toys/gifts in the air, as if they were trying to hand them to the stripper. Then, suddenly, after some ‘hyper space speed’ effects, a moving fetus is shown (stripper is pregnant?) and later a photograph of a 1-year-old baby sitting smiling on the street. What was all this!??
