In recent weeks, Jay Rock has promoted his latest studio album, Redemption, with videos for LP standouts like “The Bloodiest” and the J. Cole-assisted “OSOM.” Continuing to bring the stories of his new project to life, the Watts lyricist looks to Redemption cut “ES Tales” for his latest visual.

Directed by Jack Begert and Dave Free, the unique video for “ES Tales” takes viewers on a pixelated journey through Jay Rock’s neighborhood. A day on the block with Jay Rock is a lot more serious than a game of Super Mario, though, and the cop cars, drug deals and other sights prove this is much more than a simple video game.

You can view video for Jay Rock’s “ES Tales” above.

To learn about the story behind the aforementioned rapper’s latest album, check out episode three of Jay Rock’s Road to Redemption docu-series.
