Jamila Woods and Chance The Rapper Are Searching for Chicago Students to Direct Their Next Video
Chance the Rapper is continuing his mission to inspire students in his hometown of Chicago. The altruistic rapper and his good friend, Jamila Woods, have to teamed up to reach out to Chicago high school students to help them shoot their next video.
On Tuesday (May 23), Chance put the word out on his Twitter account above that he’s looking for creative students to submit video treatments for “LSD,” a fantastic song from Woods’ stellar album, HEAVN, which also features Chance, himself.
All students are asked to submit their creations to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 2. The winner of the competition will get to shadow the directors and production crew on the set. The clip will be co-directed by Sam Bailey, who helmed Woods’ “Brown Girls” video.
This is a great project for Chicago teens to get involved in. Jamila Woods has been inspiring young people as the Artistic Director of Young Chicago Authors, while Chance is trying to fund the Chicago Public School system through his New Chance Arts and Literature Fund. So far, he has raised over $2 million for CPS.
Salute to Chance and Jamila!
