Vic Mensa feat. Eliza Doolittle “YNSP”

Chicago hip-hop artist Vic Mensa caught my attention with his progressive lyrics and vibrant low-fi music video, uploaded yesterday for all us unsuspecting music lovers. What I do suspect is that Vic Mensa is one up and comer to keep an eye on, he’s gonna take off.

The song features British singer Eliza Doolittle on the hook, another talented young artist who is best know in NZ for her single “Big When I Was Little.” She doesn’t feature in the video. Instead, director Nem Perez casts Mensa’s friends as glitches in a digital world where life isn’t all it seems. I like it — the visuals certainly match the vibe, so turn down that throwback and get with the new shit:
