In the new video for "Good in Black," Long Island rapper Tex Stone highlights the beauty of black women. The Ed Hellman-directed clip features four women who go through their daily routines as Stone raps in adoration for everything from their natural hair to their curves. Stone celebrates the special tenacity of black women that is often written off as anger and aggression: Without you it's a dub I need your element/ They intimidated by your temperament.
Over email, Tex Stone told The FADER, "The meaning behind the song is my gratitude for black women, my appreciation for where I come from, and self love. But it's just a majestic record from the jazzy bass to the bright sax cutting in (s/o to Dud)."
He continued, "The video showcases women in their light with different activities and I'm just a working man that happens to cross paths with them."
