Thoughts of Thanksgiving confections evoke fond feelings for VA rapper Scholar, who says that his latest single "Sweet Potato Pie" is about not one, but two special women in his life.

"Sweet potato pie is the illest dessert my mom cooks on Thanksgiving," he explained in an email to The FADER. "We say it's that type of food that's good for your soul. The song is a playful analogy on having a good woman that is good for the soul, and the type you want to bring home."

So maybe his mother does not make an appearance in the self-directed video for the song, which premieres today on The FADER, but you can imagine that Scholar is sated with memories of her cooking regardless. Watch the video above.
