Jai Paul – Track 2 / Str8 Outta Mumbai

I know I dip from the Burkhart well a little too often, but when he puts out videos as amazing as this one, can you really blame me? This has to be one of the superbly edited videos that I’ve ever seen. You couldn’t purposefully direct a better video for this song than Burkhart has created here. Seriously, this is one of my most favorite videos ever.

There’s a little controversy surrounding this song. This week Jai Paul’s self-titled album suddenly appeared on Bandcamp selling for $7 with each of its tracks labeled only by number (“Str8 Outta Mumbai” is how the demo version of the track was labeled), then a few days later the album disappeared from Bandcamp just as mysteriously and suddenly as it had arrived. His label claims that the album was stolen from his laptop and posted to Bandcamp by someone else illegally, but the whole affair is just so weird that a lot of people are speculating that this was some kind of drummed up publicity stunt designed to build up a lot of buzz for the otherwise unknown Jai Paul. We’ll see how it all turns out.
