Video: Jahpan – “Better Than Before”

This is a new joint from my homie Jahpan who, as you may know, is a Rhode Island representative operating out of sunny LA.  This piece was directed and edited by our other good friends, the Brother Guidera, Garrett who did the same duties on the “Paper Runnin'” video and Evan who is also part of FRESH KILL.

The nondescript background with the bokeh lights is really cool and the colors are really nice.
