New Chance the Rapper Video Is Spacey

July 31, 2013 | Andy Cush

Here’s the clip for “Everybody’s Something,” in my book the best cut from Chance the Rapper’s excellent Acid Rap mixtape (and the subject of a Sample Wars not long ago). The Austin Vesely-directed video buts Chance in some Carl Sagan-style cosmos, overlaid with some nice hi-fi lo-fi footage that impressionistically outlines the song’s lyrics about doubt, affirmation, and the violence that plagues Chance’s home city. Sounds like they added some new production flourishes to the song itself, too.
