The Video: 

Despite all the media attention on Chicago’s Drill music scene, rapper Jahzel, a native of the North Side/Uptown section of the city, balances soulfully tangible songwriting with trunk-rattling production. Growing up feeling “too hood or too proper,” Jahzel expressed himself purely through music, releasing a series of mixtapes, the latest which was hosted by DJ Whoo-Kid. In his upcoming mixtape,  In God’s Image, which he’s releasing on June 3rd, Jahzel tackles the imperfection of human nature; battling with good and evil.

Inspired by the movie The Devil’s Advocate starring Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino, Jahzel is releasing a video for the title track that juxtaposes gloom with light.  Shot in the dank basement of a Chicago warehouse, Jahzel surrounds himself with ladies dressed as golden angels to represent purity and honesty. “Being that I’m made in Gods image, I’m just a man who is imperfect; I battle with good and bad but my intentions are pure. This video sets the tone for the entire project,” says Jahzel. As Potholes In My Blog who premiered the video today says, “It’s one hell of a way to become acquainted with his sound,” which is “an extremely well produced affair.”

The Background:

It’s no secret that Chicago is one of the epicenters of youth culture right now. While Drill music represents one element of the vibrant Chi-town scene, Jahzel, a native of the North Side/Uptown section of the city, balances soulfully tangible songwriting with trunk-rattling production. Though young, Jahzel boasts a track record that includes ghostwriting Top 40 hits for internationally renowned acts, a debut mixtape that featured platinum producer and friend KE, Lil B, and JBar from Soulja Boy’s SODMG, and features with Datpiff, Fake Shore Drive, Thisis50, MTV2, and MTV’s Suckerfree Sunday. Now putting the last touches his final free mixtape release, In God’s Image, Jahzel looks to raise the stakes yet again. The project will feature extensive production from Maybach Music Group/Wale producer Tone P, a Chicago-heavy feature list that includes Noelz Vedere, Mathien, A-Cross, Meagan McNeal, and Whitney Rene, and a plethora of videos for his most refined offering to date. In God’s Image will be released on June 3rd, 2013 via The Black Key Collective.
