What's Really Going On

Via Raindrop Hustla: a really, incredibly dope new Jake One video for "Home" off his record White Van Music.

Directed by Zia Mohajerjasbi (who also did the Gabriel Teodros video I posted about last year), it feels to me like a Seattle version of this video (and not only because of Ishmael Butler's presence). Two classics in my book. As for the song itself – as much as I am obsessed with drums, the contrast of a drumless hip-hop cut or one with percussion that is integral to the sample, as this seems to be, is extra good when it's good. I always knew Jake One would blow up.

Pick up Jake One's White Van Music ...immediately if not soon.

Alright, I'll play it again, yeah:
