BJ the Chicago Shares ‘The Opening Ceremony’ Short Film

blame it on Shake August 7, 2018

Back in May, BJ the Chicago Kid resurfaced with a three-song EP called The Opening Ceremony. And now, he’s bringing the music to life with a matching short film.

Broken down into three parts, the six-minute experience breaks down life in Los Angeles from three different perspectives.

“We’re simply telling three different stories in one about what happens in the inner city and tying them together,” BJ told NPR. “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.”
