The visual cut is directed by RUFFMERCY, who has previously worked on visuals for Run The Jewels plus label mates Flying Lotus and Danny Brown. The stylized video features the director's signature animated sketches, following the protagonist as he attempts to escape a recurring cycle.
“An artist like George has managed to stay relevant throughout his career making uplifting music with positive vibes and I think that’s key to his longevity. He’s sincere and passionate about his music and that shines through and definitely an overriding reason why I chose to take on the project. The highlight of which has been working on the video for "Shape the future." It's a killer track with a positive message running through it.
"The track is an ode to humankind and the power of positive thought in shaping your destiny. The song is especially poignant as it features Nightmares main-man George Evelyn on vocals, something of a rarity from throughout his 25-year career."
