Watch: Summertime Chicago Shines In Jamila Woods & Chance The Rapper's New 'LSD' Video

Jamila Woods on Tuesday morning released a new video for her standout HEAVN track "LSD," and the clip—which, like the song, features an appearance from Chance the Rapper—doubles as a lovely celebration of the pair's hometown.

Scenes from Lake Michigan and summertime backyard cookouts abound. The video has deeper Chicago roots, too: You might recall that Woods and Chance put out a call in May for Chicago Public Schools students to submit video treatments for the love-letter-to-Chicago track. The winning student, Ashley Huicochea, a recent graduate of Prosser Career Academy, was responsible for the treatment, and also shadowed the production.

The cookouts represent a moment in which people can be "together as a family as whole," a "moment of serenity," Huicochea said in a short making-of documentary. "There’s a lot more to the city than what the general masses say about us," she adds.
