Long Hot Summer
If this video for “Long Hot Summer” had arrived two months ago, it would have joined ipso facto our catalogue of dreamed scenarios, on which we would have conscientiously spent our last summer days. But now, with autumn clinging from our sore noses (the unforgiving first colds of the year), it all sounds like a joke. While in the office aspirins are on everybody’s desks, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek (a.k.a. Reflection Eternal) relax by the swimming pool. And we’d better not say anything about their sweet female companion, lest our fever shoots up. The video was directed by Joslyn Rose Lyons.
