Sapient - "Grown Up" (Video)

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Tue, Jun 28, 2011 at 6:16 AM

A quick primer in case you were unaware: Sapient is one finely skilled emcee. A member of the Sandpeople crew, he released his most complete work to date in 2010, a solo disc entitled Barrels For Feathers. You really should own that record. In fact, buy it right here. It's cool, we'll wait.

Now that we're all caught up you can take a few minutes to watch this impressive clip for "Grown Up," the most introspective track from Barrels For Feathers. Well-directed by Shawn Shannon, the video tastefully uses both color and black and white footage as it surrounds the emcee with a large cast of extras, both old and (very) young.
