Wake N' Watch: Kendrick Lamar f/ Jhene Aiko "Growing Apart (View of Tokyo)" Music Video

Compton-raised young MC Kendrick Lamar officially released his self-titled debut EP last year through Jay Rock-affiliated imprint, Top Dawg Entertainment. Lamar's up-and-coming project O.D. (Overly Dedicated) is set to drop on September 15th. So, in anticipation of this release, the mild-paced single "Growing Apart" received a dope video treatment. The soft yet charming chorus, accompanied by Lamar's distinctive vocals (and lyricism) over acid jazz-influenced backdrop, makes a well-soothing combination for the visual, which displays Tokyo's busy scenery through translucent light spectacles created by time-lapse photography. It definitely stands out from an average rap video, and you should check it out immediately.
