HipHopDX Premiere – Bay Area MC Vocab Slick has resurfaced with a new visual for “Eyes Wide Open,” which comes from his forthcoming yet-to-be-titled album.
Directed and edited by Will Rushton for Will Rushton Films, the video took on a life of its own when it evolved from just featuring concert footage to showcasing photos and clips of people in his life he’s blessed to know.
“The concept just kept evolving and the end result is amazing,” Slick tells HipHopDX. “Rushton did a beautiful job bringing it to life.”
