Chimurenga Renaissance - the duo of Shabazz Palaces’ Tendai “Baba” Maraire and rapper Hussein Kalonji - explore the Great Zimbabwe ruins in their video for “Pop Killer,” off their Defenders Of The Crusades EP. In the clip, the Zimbabwe-centered hip-hop duo travel to the ancient city that was the capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe; Maraire slowly walks through the hills of stone steps and houses, as the sky turns to dusk. Traditional African instruments are played throughout the video, accompanied by dancers at the top of a hill, with the upcoming sunset serving as a backdrop. Maraire carefully examines his surroundings with each step and turn until he reaches the top, where he poses in a prayer position, and the camera pans out to reveal his white studded outfit has transformed into a colorful African garment. The politically charged song, focusing on cultural exploration and commercialism, shows that connecting to your past can create a new path for the future.
