Fresh off the release of his highly-anticipated, third album “ASTROWORLD”, rapper Travis Scott has returned with a music video for “Stop Trying to Be God”. A trippy and apocalyptic take on what appears to be the Rapture, the video was directed by Dave Meyers and  is based upon numerous biblical references.

The video depicts Scott as a god-like figure, leading a group of followers while he remains indestructible around heavenly smiting that occurs all around him. Longtime girlfriend and mother of his child, Kylie Jenner, also makes a cameo appearance as a golden figure, perhaps in the semblance of the Virgin Mary. Featuring hordes of sheep, stripper angels, and a black Jesus figure, the video is a mish-mosh of biblical references juxtaposed against pop culture as we know it today.

Be sure to check out the video above, and get a glimpse of the beginning of the end through the lens of Travis Scott.
