Although shot in the present, the video harkens back to the Civil War and the lingering history surrounding Atlanta. An orchestra plays outside in a town square while the smoky remnants of an explosion blow past. It feels as if a canon has just been fired rather than some more modern weapon.

Elsewhere in the video, the trio brings a literal meaning to “dead presidents” when they rap in a room displaying the bodies of Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson (among others) laying in coffins. Armed with stacks of cash, Migos make it rain over their bodies in a societal role reversal that took more than a century to accomplish.

“Deadz” appears on Migos’ most recent album C U L T U R E. Watch the explicit video on
