D Smoke visits the roaring ’20s in video for “Honey Jack”

The latest visual from the ‘Rhythm + Flow’ winner.

Rhythm + Flow winner D Smoke has released a poignant video for “Honey Jack,” a cut from his latest EP, Inglewood High.

Set in the roaring ’20s, the clip stars the Californian rapper as a budding writer who works as a waiter to make ends meet. The visual contrasts the speakeasy glamor of the era with the systemic racism and segregation that was also characteristic of the decade.

“‘Honey Jack’ is a period piece, a journey into the mind and plight of a young, unsung artist,” D Smoke told the FADER. “As he loses himself in his day-to-day work, he finds himself coping with realities in a glass of brown liquor.”

Besides “Honey Jack,” D Smoke’s Inglewood High EP also features the song “Lil’ Red.” The rapper, who won the inaugural season of Netflix’s rap realty contest Rhythm + Flow, is expected to release his debut album sometime next month.
