Pusha T shared a 20 minute mini-movie to coincide with the release of his Darkest Before Dawn album. It opens with an ominous thunderstorm, suggesting that things are about to go wrong, and sure enough, the MC is on the run from the cops within the first five minutes. A confession in church serves as a voice-over throughout the clip, which is filled with heavy-handed religious imagery. Kid Art served as director.

The rapper talked about his experience making the movie in a recent Reddit AMA. "I want to learn the art of theater because of Darkest Before Dawn," he noted, "and I respect the process of acting very much. My inspiration was to just show how miracles come in different forms and to show even though you might not do the right thing all the time that you live by a certain set of principles."
