Capital STEEZ | "Herban Legend"

animated music video

"The Force will be with you....always."

Herban Legend takes you through a day in Brooklyn with King Capital STEEZ himself. In collaboration with Pro Era, we created this three minute animated saga that premiered at the 2016 memorial benefit concert Steez Day. We called upon our team of animators to help develop and execute this stunning hand-drawn piece in just 2 weeks. All in honor of the Pro Steez.

“In the visual created by The Family, they recreate STEEZ’s lyrics as he chills at his crib watching WorldStar videos and smoking on that sticky” 

 

 

“Revisiting STEEZ’s AmeriKKKan Korruption project, the Pro Era collective enlist the help of the fellow artists at The Family to serve up a posthumous animated short for “Herban Legend.” This piece tells a story, so follow along as the animation guides you.”

 

“[Pro Era]’s latest offering to his memory is a video for the 2012 Kirk Knight-produced track “Herban Legend,” which charts his legacy within the group in compelling animation.”
