Chris Young The Rapper Releases Video for “Stop”

Hip hop artist Chris Young has released a video for his single “Stop” off his EP, 1991, via Bananabeat Records. Carlos Charles Perez, who is known for his work with the Grammy-nominated band Vampire Weekend, produced and directed the video.

The video is a homage to the “golden-era of hip hop.”

“You wouldn’t normally expect to see a hip-hop video done in this style and manner that has the signature look from a talent like Carlos, but I’m not a typical hip-hop guy,” Chris Young The Rapper said.

Florida native Carlos Charles Perez has quickly been making a name for himself with his unique artistry. In addition to filming for Vampire Weekend, Perez has produced and directed for Los Angeles avant-electronic artist Glasser, Afro-pop artist Jankay Nabay from Sierra Leone, and Brooklyn noise rockers Fiasco.

“It felt right to do this video with Chris Young,” Perez explained. “His style is timeless and when I heard his music I had a vision in my mind about what this could translate to on film.

“Our styles combined create a vibe that’s just right.”
