Watch video » Steven Malcolm - Summertime featuring Snoop Dogg and Jay-Way; with the music video for his new track, "Summertime," Christian hip-hop musician Steven Malcolm continues to build anticipation for his next album, Tree.
Snoop Dogg and rapper/singer Jay-Way both make cameo appearances in the LOT35 Productions-directed video. The video is set in sunny California, and it shows Malcolm, Snoop, and Jay-Way enjoying the sights and sounds of the Hollywood Hills, from watching skaters show off their moves at a local park to riding around the streets in a vintage whip.
Snoop Dogg kicks things off with a verse painting a picture of life on the West Coast, laying down a performance as smooth as a breeze passing through an L.A. palm tree, dripping in Death Row Records clothing and wearing a pendant of the label's iconic insignia.

Malcolm, a native of Grand Rapids, Mich., tells VIBE ahead of the single's release, "This record is all about summertime feelings on the West Coast."
