Earlier this year, Atlanta duo Earthgang announced the release date for Ghetto Gods, their long-awaited follow-up to Mirrorland. It finally came out last month with features from Future, 2 Chainz, Nick Cannon, J. Cole (who signed them to his Dreamville label), Baby Tate, CeeLo Green (despite some serious accusations), and more.
They’re back today with a music video for “American Horror Story,” which is episode 1 of The Ghetto Gods Show. It takes the storytelling of the track to the next level with evocative visuals, while they confront class struggles: “Life hard enough just thinking bout rent / Coulda bought my freedom all the money I spent. / Ain’t that some sh*t / I mean for real all this money we got and we still can’t help Flint.” The video ends on a cliffhanger with the words: “To be continued…”
This song was one of the first singles to be released off the album, along with “Options” and its remix with Coi Leray, as well as “Erykah,” an ode to R&B pioneer Erykah Badu. Last year, they stayed busy by working with the rest of the Spillage Village collective, including 6lack, JID, and Mereba, on their Spilligion album.
