Japanese rapper KOHH released the music video for "I Want a Billion," his collaboration with ONE OK ROCK frontman Taka.

The track is included in the 28-year-old hip-hop artist's new album, Untitled, released in February. The innovative music video was first released at a one-week-only promotional event at the Shibuya 109 department store in Tokyo.

Fans were able to experience the full force of the visuals shot with 360-degree cameras at the booth equipped with MX4D (R) motion seats and Virtual Reality (VR) headsets. Only the short version had been available on YouTube, but the full version dropped April 10. Watch below:

The video takes the viewer on a virtual ride up and down a six-tiered videogame-like grid, where KOHH and Taka can be seen rapping and singing facing the camera on each floor.

Graphics like drones, a female-shaped android, and a flying dove enhance the 3D experience, while soldiers clad head to toe in armor pointing guns at the camera add to the ominous tone of the visuals.

In the end, the camera soars up through the basement floors and into the brightly lit city, shooting between buildings and up into the dark night sky.
