After the release of his new EP, California, Diplo has released another new video, ‘Suicidal’ ft. Desiigner. The video was shot in NYC by Shomi Patwary who is a longtime collaborator with both Diplo & Desiigner.
Patwary directed Major Lazer’s 2014 video for ‘Lose Yourself,’ Desiigner’s 2017 video for ‘Liife’ featuring Gucci Mane as well as the 2017 video for Diplo & Pritam collaboration Phurr starring Shah Rukh Khan.
Diplo says of the track, “Desiigner came over for a few days and just locked in on that beat. We wrote a scratch and then a few months later cut the vocal and we had a good track. For me its a sort of compromise between some of my favorite producers like Flume and Mura Masa and a real hip hop energy that Desiigner brings.”
