It would seem fair to assume that DJ Khaled would be riding high on success at the moment. Last month’s release of his album Major Key ushered in some of the best reviews of his career, and it boasts a guest list that includes the full hip-hop royal family tree; from Jay Z to Future to Drake to Lil Wayne to Nicki Minaj (we could go on). One particularly excellent guest spot came courtesy of Nas, who appeared on an overtly self-aware track titled “Nas Album Done.” Now the duo has just treated us to a visual for the song, which proves that Khaled’s enjoying success and prosperity beyond the realms of imagination.
And how is this success shown? Well by riding a damn horse into the ocean of course. Equestrian activities aside, the epically-long nine-minute visual is a showcase for how much fun Khaled and Nas can have when they’re drinking Ciroc on the beach. And dancing with some gorgeous women who have found themselves very far from the Rio Carnival float from whence they came. The video is an exercise in excess, showing just how awesome it is to be a titan of your industry and enjoy cigars and yachts and, yes, horseback ocean swims. To quote Nas’ verse: “that’s a major key.”
