Watch: Los Rakas Explore Love & Racism in “Abrazame” Video

Panamanian rap duo Los Rakas has released a new video for their Uproot Andy-produced “Abrazame,” directed by Aris Jerome.

The visuals provide a love story for the rhythmic reggaeton tune, which incorporates the riddim of the year from Gyptian‘s “Hold Yuh.”

But the video’s underlying theme is racism and its effect on interracial dating, which is still very prevalent and public in Latin America, specifically in Los Rakas’ home country of Panama. Watch below.
