Like Pen & Pixel in ’98, Steve Aoki & Lil Uzi Vert’s new video is bling-tastic!

Remember those old No Limit covers?

Well, Steve Aoki has taken it upon himself – with some help from Ours&Yours and DJay Brawner and Blake Greenbaum of Anthem Films – to recreate some of those iconic pieces of artwork by Pen & Pixel in video format.

Dropping the visuals for his Lil Uzi Vert-assisted single “Been Ballin”, Steve is seen rowing through a river of gold whilst transitioning to shots of overflowing Belaire champagne, Bentleys and Kolony coins falling from the sky.

Pretty ridiculous, right? But that’s a part of its charm. It’s so ridiculous that you can’t help but keep watching to see what else they can ‘bling up’ and blow out of proportion.

Judging from the live performance shots, Lil Uzi Vert was obviously not available for the taping of the video – it’s highly unlikely it was on some Ma$e-type nonsense, or at least we hope not. But regardless, they make it work and there’s even a cameo from the current bling king Ben Baller.

Steve Aoki is currently on his Kolony North American tour to promote his album of the same name, which debuted at #1 on the Electronic Album charts.
