St. Louis rapper Jonezy has released his second music video this fall from his recently released Co$tombs. This time, he's giving visuals to "ExitUS," and taking his view outward, literally and figuratively. His first video, for "Wake Up," uses his own life to talk about the way society is structured, and featured him going through a typical day. This time, he's starting with wider issues and the video was shot in Mexico.

Once again, he produced the clip himself, through his 2nd Story Productions. "ExitUS" was produced by Pancho Rucker and samples Bob Marley. Watch below.

We spoke with Jonezy when he released the "Wake Up" video, and our conversation touched on the value of music videos generally:

Kiernan Maletsky: Why do you think it's important for independent artists to make music videos?

Jonezy: So many people are discovered on YouTube, and not just for music. It also allows music to be doubly entertaining, because of the visuals. If a video goes viral, or gets a ton of hits, that could springboard the artist to a whole different level.

This video is as good as I've seen on all the big hip hop blogs....Jonezy needs to get some national attention.  People are closed-minded to what they think STL artists are about.
