Deep Cotton feat. Jidenna - Let's Get Caught

Janelle Monáe’s Wondaland Records imprint dropped one of the more pleasant surprises of the year with their The Eephus EP last month. The six-track effort was short but a more than worthy introduction to Monáe’s cast of artistic misfits who defied convention, championed creativity, and even got their civil rights on.

Deep Cotton’s “Let’s Get Caught,” a four-minute symphony of ’70s funk with a riding beat and good intentions to do bad things with the one who caught your eye, was one of the EP’s obvious stand-out cuts. Now Deep Cotton has given their funktastic single a set of visuals to match.

Premiered on The Fader, the “Let’s Get Caught” music video has Sebastian Urrea of Motion Family behind the lens directing the duo as they entertain a bevy of beauties both in the house (one man in particular finds himself being read to while bathing in books) and outside in a backyard pool, before closing things out at a performance. Jidenna (who features on the track) arrives fashionably late to the party; but before long, the self-proclaimed Classic Man is on-stage with Deep Cotton getting their audience hyper than ever. (Monáe herself, by the way, makes a small but noticeable cameo in the crowd towards the end, literally taking the background while her artists are in the spotlight).
