Lex One gets cinematic in his new video, “Wonder Jungle,” taken from his 2016 released Gold Plaque LP. The video finds the Miami artist teaming with frequent collaborator and director Alex Engel for a short film about the ups and downs that life can bring.
“The video symbolizes life in a way,” Lex explains. “Sometimes it just grabs you, kidnaps you, leaves you in the middle of nowhere and you have to find your sh*t and start over.” True to his word, the artist depicts a young man who has all of those terrible things happen to him—and then some. Bits of the video play out like a horror movie, particularly those flashes of an apparent torture scene. But luckily our hero seems to make it out alive, though he’s got some notable bumps and bruises.
Lex appears to eventually find his way—along with all of the items that had been stolen from him—but what’s up with that phone call he receives? Let’s just say that there’s absolutely room for a sequel to “Wonder Jungle,” which is the second Lex video directed by Engel. He previously worked on the captivating and trippy visuals for “My Own Worst Remedy,” which features his frequent collaborator, Third World Don (f/k/a Mike Beatz).
Check out the visuals for “Wonder Jungle” and head over to the digital retailer or streaming platform of your choice to support Lex One’s Gold Plaque LP which is available through his GTPS Music imprint.
