Yxng Bane and Timberland have joined forces for the music video for ‘Slip n’ Slide, which is taken from Bane’s mixtape ‘HBK’ – released only last week. The collaboration is part of Timberland ’s ‘Celebrate the Icons’ campaign which marks the 45th anniversary of the iconic yellow boot.
The Slip n’ Slide honours those tastemakers who fused music, art, and fashion and inspiration for the visuals stems from icons including; Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Spike Lee, and Tupac, with references throughout the styling, choreography, staging, and cinematography.
Speaking about the video which was shot in East London, Yxng Bane said, “I look back on music icons like Boyz II Men, 2Pac, Biggie & Mase, Isley Brothers, R Kelly and Dipset who were part of a generation of artists that rewrote music culture in the 90’s – their influence is still strongly felt in the industry today, it’s impossible not to be inspired by that. Timberland are still a huge part of that scene and continue to inspire artists today, so partnering on this video felt like a natural continuation.”
