A year after releasing the critically acclaimed Rap Album One on the prolific Stones Throw Records, alternative hip hop artist Jonwayne has just released the official music video for The Come Up featuring Scoop DeVille. An innovator among the already innovative West Coast beat scene, Jonwayne’s slow, methodical flow sits atop the soulfully weird (and self-produced) beats of the track perfectly. The video, directed by Henry DeMaio, who’s directed Mayer Hawthorne and Madlib among others, features a minimalist aesthetic shot in black and white, shining an iconic light on the Wayniac.
Jonwayne will be playing a handful of shows in Europe this month (dates below). Pick up Rap Album One here.
