Zulu Guru is the first full-length collaboration from singer/songwriter Jesse Boykins III and producer/MC MeLo-X. With Zulu Guru, they bring together a collection of songs that reflect and define a new direction in Hip Hop and R&B.
This track was originally released around 6 months ago to rapturous applause, and JB3 comes through with some visuals to help promote the above annoucement. That collabo project sound frankly awesome, and it’ll be great seeing one of the best soul vocalists on the rise joining up with a massively underrated beatmaker for a whole album.
Visually, this one’s an interesting blend of simplicity with a little messaging, as scenes shot in front of a serene temple are juxtaposed with those of cityscapes and trains, before slowly unravelling into a more freedom-driven clip with nature, live shows and a dancer on the beach. It’s an easy watch that matches the style of the audio well, and I’d recommend giving it a watch and a listen if you haven’t already.
