Theophilus London Discusses the Importance of "Girls, Girls & $" (Money)

After releasing a string of successful mixtapes and digi-singles, Theophilus London is finally readying his debut long-player titled, Timez Are Weird These Days. The Brooklyn by way of London (Trinidad) native worked with a wide array of artists composed of: Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio), Jokke, John Hill, Liz Lee, Sara Quin (Tegan & Sara), KREAYSHAWN, Holly Miranda, Solange [Knowles], Ariel Rechstshaid, Devonte Hynes, and Playboy's Christina Curry.
"Girls Girls $" is the latest in a stream of recent promotional singles... This including: "I Stand Alone" [How to Make It (Trailer)], "Field of Dreams," "Century Girl," "LAST NAME LONDON," "Flying Overseas," and "Why Even Try?" The companion video clip for "Girls Girls $" premiered over @ Vulture back on Wed. the 13th. I'll let Mr. Theophilus London himself explain the rest...

"This video * was built on the hype and importance of the Internet. NYC legends and hotspots, Twitter personalities, quotes, and everything hyped - weather good or bad. I was intrigued by this character my friend Ben Solomon had on his avatar ["King Solomon"] and approached him via Twitter and email to talk about a concept. He came over [and] we sketched out a few things and brainstormed. This is the modern-day Waldo... Can [you] spot anyone? #isityou?"

* Illustrated by Tim Walkiewicz (OG Artwork), Animated by Nate Kim, and Produced by Ben Solomon. Pick up a copy of Timez Are Weird These Days, when it's released this coming Tues. July 19th. And be sure to hit up Theophilus London @ his assorted Social Mediums.
