SAINt JHN brings the real fun to the amusement park in the video for "1999." Under overcast skies, the Brooklyn artist and his crew ride through the streets on top of a car, hanging out the windows and trailing on skateboards. As day turns to night, Jhn and his friends unapologetically take over their terrain in style while paying homage to the classic and hardcore feel of the last year of the 90's.
Over email, SAINt JHN told The FADER, "1999, that’s the year that I woke up. I wasn’t even really writing a song. It was more like revisiting my childhood. I was introducing myself, but with a 'fuck you' instead of 'hello.'"
He continued, "We shot the video in Coney Island. We didn’t mean to, but it ended up looking like a hood version of “Warriors.” All the people in it – that’s my team, GØDD COMPLEXx."
