North Carolina upstart Jalen Santoy revisits his Charlie Eastern project with a video for one its more confident efforts, “Off The Glass.”

The video sees Santoy wandering an arid area with a deadpan look on his face while people around him are going crazy holding skeleton bones. He explained the meaning of the video:

“The skeleton bones show that we’re stepping into new ground, something that you haven’t seen before,” he told Pigeons & Planes, who premiered the video. “The track is a little bit different from the video and so I wanted to give a different perspective. The bones represent the old soundscape of what people feel is trendy right now. I’m trying to get across that rap was intended to have a purpose, bringing your brain to the forefront.”
