J. Cole Releases ‘Neighbors’ Video
J. Cole has released the official music video for his single, “Neighbors,” and it features real-life footage of that time The Sheltah, a home his label rents for new artists, was raided by SWAT.
Elite, who is an in-house producer for Dreamville, gave the scoop on the raid during an interview with Hot New Hip Hop.
Apparently what happened was, we were all in Austin, Texas, for SXSW; thankfully no one was in the house when this went down. One of the neighbors told the police we were growing weed or selling drugs out of this house. And there was a huge investigation, like a million-dollar investigation.
They flew helicopters over, sent an entire SWAT team armed with weapons, broke down the door and searched the whole house. Thankfully nobody was in the house. Our engineer Juro ‘Mez’ Davis had just stepped out for lunch and he came back and saw the SWAT team busting down the door.
The footage originally aired during J. Cole’s “For Your Eyez Only” HBO special, but you can see it for yourself below.
