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 plays like a short movie chronicling Lex One’s struggles from being left for dead in the desert by unknown figures. We get to see his journey from certain death to slowly picking up the pieces along the way. While Lex appears to eventually find his way—we get left with a cliffhanger at the end of the video. I won’t give away the premise here so hit the play button and get familiar.
“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.
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.
