The Ask About Me rapper first released the track on May 17 and returns with the full video treatment for the banger, complete with an armored truck full of cash, a Karaoke party and the full backing of a cameo from Hit-Boy. According to the director Jack Begert, they had a dope time shooting the video throughout the entire neighborhood of Koreatown.
“Got to shut down one of my favorite neighborhoods in LA for Jay Park K-TOWN music video w/ Hit-Boy,” Jack wrote on Instagram.
“Shout out to my dude Jay for hanging out the back of the armored truck Joker-style.”

The release of “K-Town” arrives just weeks after Jay Park dropped two bombs on his fans when he shared that he was receiving the “Game Changer” Award from Smithsonian APAC, in tandem with the news that he planned to retire in a few years.
“I’m gonna retire in a couple years,” he wrote in tweet. “This is a promise to you guys and myself. Not a lot of space for guys like me left in this game.”
