Jahzel – “Chapters”


6 June 2013 No Comment

Today The Smoking Section premiered the latest visual from Chi-Town rapper Jahzel, for the song “Chapters,” from his upcoming album In God’s Image, due out July 2.  The video, directed by Asa Davis, features Jahzel, surrounded by walls plastered with handwritten pages, thus giving a literal illustration for the concept behind the track.

“My main inspiration for this video was trying to create a visual novel or book,” Jahzel explains, “We wanted to really give a look of someone who was locked in a room, and has gone mad writing pages upon pages of stories.” The song’s introspective and deeply personal lyrics lent to a visual style that capitalized on his desire to share where he comes from and what he has learned . “It ties into the song as I discuss how I’ve been through many experiences which when written down, could fill up several pages. Each experience being a past ‘chapter’ of my life,” Jahzel continues, pointing out that his story is far from complete. “Also in the video I am shown still writing, symbolizing that I have much more life to live.”
