Jahzel – The Vision (Video)
Chicago emcee Jahzel is back with his latest video aptly titled The Vision. After many weeks of promotion and hustle, Jahzel released his album The Wake Up on iTunes last month. Watch as Jahzel takes you on a ride with his female companion for an art heist. Read more about the video below:
Every man needs a partner in crime. Luckily, Jahzel finds his in the video for “The Vision” from his recently released album, The Wake Up. The video, which premiered via RedEye Chicago, is set on a snowy day in the Windy City where Jahzel and his leading lady play the 2015 version of Bonnie and Clyde. “Jahzel and a partner become hardened criminals as they attempt a dangerous art heist on Chicago’s streets,” states the RedEye. “While it’s a somewhat gritty clip, Jahzel’s prowess behind the mic and his adventurous ear for beats manage to be both intense and accessible.”
Like a hip-hop version of the DaVinci Code, Jahzel is tasked with securing a prized piece of art. Unknown to the viewer, what the conniving duo are actually stealing is the cover art to Jahzel’s project, The Wake Up. Interspersed throughout the narrative is Jahzel rapping on a cold corner as he and his partner plan and execute the raid of a warehouse. Both the video and song represent the two sides of Jahzel. “The Vision” is both a lyrically dense narrative mixed with a knack for Jahzel’s commercially appealing hooks over hypnotic beats. Through a chopped and screwed drawl Jahzel spits on the chorus, “Windows down, music bumping, we’re just chilling, feeling epic, coastin’.” The Chicago rapper mixes a Houston indebted flavor to the hook, while still keeping his roots to the Chi clear.
