Watch Kamasi Washington’s “Get Lit” Short Film With George Clinton, Willow, Robert Glasper, and More


Kamasi Washington has released a short film for “Get Lit,” a new song taken from his album Fearless Movement. Directed by Jenn Nkiru, the visual clocks in just over 13 minutes and stars George Clinton and D Smoke—both of whom are featured guests on the track itself—as well as Saul Williams, Willow, Robert Glasper, Raphael Saadiq, and Patrice Quinn.

It’d been six years since Washington’s last album: 2018’s Heaven and Earth. In the years following the 2018 effort, he put out the companion EP The Choice and his soundtrack for the Michelle Obama documentary Becoming. Washington also released several projects with Robert Glasper and Terrace Martin under their joint Dinner Party moniker.
