Wow, this is fantastic looking! According to OkayPlayer’s Dantana (via Complex), this footage of Jay Electronica, shot by Jason Goldwatch in Nepal, has been lying dormant for almost two years…whatever the reason for the delay, I’m glad they finally got the greenlight.
While Jay E’s first “Dimethyltryptamine” video is a collage of references through his own eyes–JFK, mushroom clouds, pigs etc.—this version looks at Jay instead, experiencing laser-vision through the streets of Kathmandu.
Even though this song is over 4 years old, it still sounds completely current. This year Jay has been traveling the world, recording. Not sure if he’s living in London now, but I can’t wait to hear what he’s cooking up.
Here’s OkayPlayer‘s details on the video:
