After all is said and done, every guy just wants something dope he can call his own. That's the idea behind ZAKEE's new single, "Dope Girl," the latest release from his debut album, Assimilations, currently available for purchase via Green Owl Records/Warner Music Group.
The washed-out, dreamy video for "Dope Girl" was directed by Joey Angerone and inspired by none other than James Dean, another old-timer who has served as an inspiration for ZAKEE. "I always loved how cool and calm he looked on camera and wanted to evoke that same feeling, but tailored for me," says ZAKEE. Looking like an old home movie, the video celebrates how satisfying it can be to simply hang out in the rain with the things you cherish most. "I have the most amazing days riding around in my Chevy with my two girls: Mary Jane and my Dope Girl," says ZAKEE.
