101 #FuckOutMyFace: Prince Harvey’s Music Video Release Hosted by Morehshin Allahyari

Eyebeam first fall Welcome Wednesday, hosted by Morehshin Allahyari, premieres the visual for “101: #FuckOutMyFace”. It’s the first single from Prince Harvey’s forthcoming sophomore upcoming album, Red Dress, to be released this fall. The viewing will be followed by a Q&A with Prince Harvey and the video’s cinematographer Antonia Colodro, moderated by Kai de la Cruz. 

 

In 101 the velvet-clad rapper encapsulates his experience navigating the world in a queer, black body. Exploring the complexities of relating to a culture that has yet to make room for its most marginalized members, 101 highlights the misalignment between vocal bravado and lived experience.

In 2017, he released an EP called Golden Child, followed by STAY BOLD: 100 DAYS 100 SONGS, where he premiered a new song everyday for 100 days as a protest against Trump.
