Video: Esinchill - "Daddy Was A Sailorman" (Prod. Jake One)

Poetic and skillful MC Esinchill is back with a new video for his Jake One-produced single "Daddy Was A Sailorman." The second video of off the Oakland rapper's sophomore album, Vigilante, available now via Clear Label Records, provides a complex visual for the song, which describes Esinchill meeting his father in a dream and reminiscing on the influential choices he made when he was younger. Sprinkled with actual photos of his father in his Navy uniform and Esinchill as a child, director Casual of WetFoot Filmworks captures the track's surreal feel by going back and forth between reality and washed out dream sequences. Along with a literal fork in the road, the video paints a picture of the challenges that arise when becoming a father, and the important message that Esinchill wants to convey. "Always be a father to your child, no matter what life may offer," says Esinchill. "I have a daughter now and every decision starts and ends with her, just as I suspect my dad's did."
