Masterpiece: Just Blaze & Baauer ft. Jay Z – “Higher” (Video)

Although, I don’t particularly favor the song, this video directed by the beast that is Nabil (directed Frank Ocean‘s epic visual for “Pyramids”), is more than noteworthy. The video was shot in Kerala, India and featured combat provided by the Kalaripayattu warriors, who practice one of the oldest forms of martial arts in the world. From the crisp editing to the action sequences, everything about this montage/short film is damn near spectacular. Nabil was interviewed by The Fader yesterday so peep that discussion and behind-the-scenes pictures here.
