Lil Durk and Dej Loaf take their talents from the booth to the basketball court for their Love & Basketball-inspired video for "My Beyonce."
The rapping couple channels actors Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan in the Robert Styles-directed visual, particularly the scene from the 2000 film where the characters take it from the hoop to the bedroom for a steamy one-on-one match.
Hip-hop’s new Bonnie and Clyde drop the video for their collab “My Beyonce.” Re-enacting the classic strip basketball scene from Love & Basketball, Lil Durk and DeJ Loaf put their young love out there for the world to see. Smiling and laughing with one another as Loaf raps about taking her counterpart’s last name, the two seem genuine in their relationship. The next Jay Z and Beyonce? Perhaps. But for now they’re just Durk and DeJ, and that’s perfect.
The Robert Styles-directed clip was filmed on the campus of the University of Southern California which is where the film takes place so props to Styles and the two artists for keeping things authentic.
