Chance the Rapper Brings Introspective Thoughts to Life in ‘Everybody’s Something’ Video
Chicago rhymer Chance the Rapper has released his first video from his critically acclaimed mixtape ‘Acid Rap.’ The visual for ‘Everybody’s Something’ is presented through various images of his introspective thoughts.
Directed by Austin Vesely, the Chi-City rhymer spits rhymes about the importance of self-love and acceptance, all while a green screen flashes images of various societal ills. On the chorus, Chance sings, “Everybody’s somebody’s everything / I know you right / Nobody’s nothing / That’s right.”
The song is beautifully written with the beat lifted from Slum Village’s classic song, ‘Fall in Love,’ which was produced by the late and great J Dilla.
It’s a rare occasion to find a rap video that’s both visually stunning and thought-provoking.
Not hating on Chief Keef or other rappers from Chiraq, but we need more endearing songs like this to come out of Chicago’s war zone.
