Video: Paris Jones – “Summer”

People always say, “I miss the old Kanye.” That’s an annoying thing to say about any artist, but we get it. There was a soulful simplicity about Kanye’s early production and rhymes that is missing these days—not just from Kanye but from hip-hop in general. If you are a fan of that style though, you’ll probably like this new Adele-sampling Paris Jones track, “Summer.” It’s got a lot of that bounce and charm that Kanye captured during and before The College Dropout, and the Clement & Co.-produced video that goes with it makes it even more enjoyable.

“Summer” will appear on Paris’ upcoming album, You’re Invited to the Assassination of Patrick Campbell by Paris Jones, due October 8.
