An unfinished version of the video to Wiz Khalifa’s new single “Roll Up” has arrived last weekend. Now, director Jake Davies has given the green light for the final cut which you can see above. The filmmaker also offers his scoop on the piece:

Another music video for my homie Wiz Khalifa. He wanted a laid back Cali vibe for this one. We thought it was important to have a narrative featuring a really cool leading lady in Cassie, but also play with some interesting camera techniques and post effects. The idea was to create a “Roll Up” effect that made you feel like the camera was literally rolling. I’ve always loved the way Spike Lee puts his actors on the dolly to create a hyper sense of reality. It was also important to consistently throw light into the anamorphic lenses so the video didn’t feel too polished. I wanted it to feel cinematic and capture another side of Wiz that we didn’t see in “On My Level.”

Rolling Papers is out March 29!

Soul Music has been enduring a rough period for some time now. While other music genres somehow managed to reinvent themselves from time to time, Soul seems to be stuck in some sort of dead ankle where artists look for the adequate approach to deliver their artform. The intention to balance out innovations with classic influences has become a hard task for more than just a few R&B acts.
