Mayer Hawthorne x Kendrick Lamar – Crime
I was hoping this track would get a video to accompany it. One of my favourite Mayer Hawthorne tracks gets the visual treatment. Directed by screenwriter and actress Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins from “Parks And Recreation“), “Crime” serves as the latest single off Mayer’s “Where Does This Door Go” project. Along with the visuals, Miss Jones had this to say;
“The video is a parody of ridiculously exclusive parties which are made nearly impossible to get to but tout themselves as ‘the party of the year.’ I liked the idea of the video starting as a sexy getting-ready video and devolving into a messy, very unsexy, unexpected trek. And the final realization is that YOU are the real party! I’m just starting to realize that about myself (which is why I stay home most nights). I am a HUGE fan of Mayer, Kendrick and of the song “Crime” and it was an honor to work with Mayer.”
The project itself is a solid piece of work. Be sure to grab a copy here.
