Passport Rav lives vicariously through his name, finding himself traveling overseas in support of his Jersey Boys in London tour, and his latest visual explores some of the headaches of jet-setting across the world.
The new animated video not only alludes to “Delayed Flights” which he literally experienced while traveling across Europe, it also serves as a metaphor for life. As he explained to Mass Appeal: “We are all on a flight in life and while some of us are on a delayed one. You will nonetheless reach your destination,” adding “Do not rush the process.”
Animation by 7God, the artist formerly known as Rav.P is pictured sitting in an airport terminal as he awaits his flight, waxing poetic about life’s ills thrown his way “For my brothers that gotta constantly, live in duality / Survival in AmeriKKKa, split personalities to split personality / Gifted and black and, held back as a casualty.”
The new single is set to appear on Rav’s upcoming EP Gentrified Snacks, slated for release later this fall.
