TDE’s own, Jay Rock drops the music video for his song “Es Takes” off his Redemption album.
Jay Rock video with depictions of old school video games.
The video is reminiscent of today’s game Minecraft. He acts as the audience tour guide through his Watts, California neighborhood. Jay’s lyrics construct a past life of drug dealing, gang-banging, and an environmental distress.
The beat is a combination of arcade game sounds and a traditional West coast type- beat.
