Okayfuture Video: Talib Kweli x Pretty Lights - "Around The Block" (dir. Anthony Dickenson)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Electronic music producer Pretty Lights preps his forthcoming LP A Color Map Of The Sun - the first of his four LPs to be available for sale - with the video for his single "Around The Block" featuring Talib Kweli. The video produced by Anthony Dickenson for Pulse Films is a bright take on Brooklyn that compliments the summer jam ripe for scoring the good times in life. The song encourages us all to stop and smell the roses while the sun is still shining. Taking a cue from Pretty Lights' sample-of-a-sample based production, the video features footage of the recording process for this bouncing jam. The song itself features Talib Kweli spitting fire over the track full of screaming sounds, buzzing electro-bass and a steady combo of kick and snare. Check the video below.
