The 2017 XXL Freshman class member and rap prodigy Aminé
went all out today on the release of the video for his song "Spice Girl." Surreal and playful, the video was directed by Aminé himself and gives a peek at some of the creative madness going on inside his head, including a rapping foot and a run from the cops on a toy bike. Throughout his shenanigans and adventures, the rapper reflects on the qualities of what makes a dream girl. Qualities, that the iconic Spice Girls just so happen to possess.
Aminé pulls out all the stops in the video, including a cameo of HBO series Insecure's
creator and star Issa Rae. But the true cherry on top comes at the end of the video, where Aminé, who first saw the Spice Girls live when he was five years old, finds himself in front of none other than Mel B, or Scary Spice as we know and love her, telling him "what she wants, what she really, really wants."
"Spice Girl" is out now on Aminé's debut album, Good For You.
