Back in May, BJ The Chicago Kid returned from his hiatus and released a 3-song EP called The Opening Ceremony. Having been quiet ever since, the Chicago singer decides to return to the scene today and share a new short film in its support, which finds all 3 tracks laying down the soundtrack to the visual.
The film breaks down the story of the LA neighborhood into three chapters with each song acting as the narrator. “We’re simply telling three different stories in one about what happens in the inner city and tying them together,” BJ told NPR Music. “How gunshots can ruin a party to missing the person you love because of work or a different lifestyle. ‘Nothing Into Something’ is love-making and reminiscing over the journey of turning nothing into something.”
Check out the powerful, 6-minute short film (above) and let us know what you think. The Opening Ceremony available now on iTunes.
