Robert Glasper is set to release his Everything’s Beautiful LP on May 27. The project will consist entirely of Miles Davis samples and influences, and now, the first single, “Ghetto Walkin’,” has gotten the visual treatment.
The video features a sketch human being walking in, well, the ghetto, depicting the sights and sounds of a typical evening walk in the neighborhood. Bilal’s poignant and socially conscious lyrics of the plight of a person living in the ghetto play as the sketch fights its way through negative influences.
Pre-order Everything’s Beautiful on iTunes, and watch the video above.
