Hailing a cab in New York is hard for just about anybody including GRAMMY-winning musicians. In Scott Lazer-directed “Punchin’ The Clock” video, J. Cole struggles to catch a cab in New York before riding through the city rapping over the Tae Beast production.
“Back on top, punchin’ the clock, clutchin’ sanity/I got more cribs than Habitat for Humanity/Sh*t profound, we propagating more profanity/Paid off collections from recollections of calamity,” he raps.
“The sh*t pop off, I learned to duck under the canopy/Til it cool off, they murked a n*gga right in front of me/Told him to come off his chain for tryna floss/Died over a cross just like the start of Christianity/When I was a boy, the teacher often reprimanded me.”
“Punchin’ The Clock” video is the track off of the chart-topping album, The Off-Season, to get the video treatment. J. Cole dropped videos for both “Amari” and “Applying Pressure” last month. Still, album highlights like “100 Mill” and “My Life” remain without videos. What track from The Off-Season would like to see get a video next?
