JR Castro pays tribute to Basquiat with his "Get Home" lyric video.
Coincidentally, JR Castro's birthday is the same day that legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat tragically passed away far too young. To honor both of those August 12th occurrences, Castro's chosen to share a lyric video for his recent song "Get Home" (which also features Kid Ink and Quavo) today.
"SAMO (Basquiat) most importantly represented the culture," Castro explains. "He is everything hip hop. That his art wasn't respected at first, yet his greatness found a way, that is everything." The video splices togehter scenes from various cities, with the lyrics coming through via animation reminiscent of Basquiat's own work. Let us know what you think.
