The newest music video from Anik Khan has just been released. The queens rapper has chosen to team up with Jay Prince for the project titled “Lingo” as the first installment in a 4-part visual series that showcases the stories of the global diaspora.
The video was directed by Priya Minhas and showcases Khan at a spelling bee. This acts as a nod to Khan’s South Asian roots (due to the majority of spelling bee champions being of South Asian descent) in addition to the fact that English was not his first language.
Khan was quoted as saying: “I’m focused on sharing our stories, our pigment and our realities,” Khan said. “‘Lingo’ is the first of many that are coming in the next four to six months. I’m excited to show what this next chapter for me looks like.”
A great deal of the rappers music highlights the diaspora that is for the most part unseen by the majority, in addition to his own family’s struggles. “I’mma fuck this Trump shit, I can’t fly through customs but I still fly through custom,” the lyrics say.
