Soulful songbird Jill Scott has enlisted some star support for her video shoot this morning in North Philadelphia for "Shame," the first single off her upcoming album, "The Light of the Sun."
West Philly native Eve, who is featured on the single, will appear in the video, as will Black Thought of the Roots, Mos Def, Pharaohe Monch, Peedi Crakk and Ms. Jade, says the video's director, Devin Hampton.
Hampton, a Logan native and 1997 graduate of Roman Catholic High, says the video is a throwback to early '90s dance parties. "Think of the movie 'House Party,' " he said, referring to the Kid & Play film.
Hampton, who has previously shot videos for Rick Ross, Gucci Mane and Bobby Valentino, among other artists, is also working on the pilot of a comedy series that he plans to shoot in town.
