VIDEO: Jamila Woods 'LSD' ft. Chance The Rapper

Jamila Woods' incredible album HEAVN has been re-released on Jagjaguwar and Closed Sessions.  The video for 'LSD' from the album has just been released, and it's an incredible project.  Woods and Chance the Rapper trade verses in a video shot in Chicago by aspiring filmmakers from Chicago Public Schools.  Woods, Chance, and VAM Studios' Vincent Martell and Sam Bailey conceptualized the video to include contributions from students, each submitting treatments for the video.  The winner, Ashley Huicochea was invited to shadow directors Martell & Bailey on set, with the runners up shadowing different departments of the production. 

Watch the video, and the documentary on the production below.  Get HEAVN here!
