Grammy award-winning artist Kanye West debuted a new music video and song, titled “Wash Us in the Blood,” on Tuesday filled with imagery of chaos and prayer as he pleads with the Holy Spirit to come down.

The montage of clips featured in the video were put together by Award-winning filmmaker Arthur Jafa, known for his work on a couple of Spike Lee films.

Throughout the video, West’s face is obscured by a CG black film-like mask. It opens with a white police officer whose face is blurred as he is pushing around a group of mostly peaceful protesters and then gets scolded by a female black police officer.

West raps:

Rain down on the pain
Rain down on the slain
Rain down for my mom
Rain down on the farm
Shower us with your love

Wash us in the blood
Drop this for the thugs
Know I grew up in the mud
The top is not enough
Wash us in the blood 

One of the most provocative scenes in the video shows desperately sick black Americans struggling to breathe presumably from the coronavirus. There is also footage of the fashion mogul from The Yeezus Tour in 2013-2014.

Rapper Travis Scott makes a small cameo as he’s featured on the song and is seen smoking.
