Director Nabil Confirms That's Mos Def In The "Piss On Your Grave" Video

The director reveals the new clip's masked man, and quick creation: "We came up with the idea of shooting it the day before."

Travis Scott and Kanye West dropped the video for their collaboration, "Piss On Your Grave," today. In the clip, Scott and West lurk around a misty field in Yeezy Season 2 gear while a masked man hovers behind them. The video's director, Nabil, who has shot countless classics, told The FADER, that the mystery man indeed "'tis the bro Mos Def."

Nabil said that while he and Scott were in Paris to check out the showroom for Yeezy Season 2, the trio decided to shoot a video. "It was shot in in the countryside an hour outside the city, closer to CDG," he said. "There was a castle and by the castle there were some beautiful woods. It fit with the vibe and what they were wearing. We came up with the idea of shooting it the day before."

The close up shots of liquid streaming down hills were shot a couple days later in a minute shot that Nabil set up. Some shots of that can be seen on his Instagram. "There was a good vibe and it was super chill," he added. "It was pretty sporadic—it wasn't so premeditated. We just had fun with it."
