Last summer, Skrillex and Vic Mensa teamed up to create “No Chill,” an under-the-radar yet undeniable banger that played into their respective musical styles. Vic brought his Chi-Town flavor and lyrical tenacity, while Skrillex and co-producer Jahlil Beats cooked up a trap-infused backdrop meant to start a riot.
“No Chill” finally receives a vibrant visual treatment today courtesy of Colin Tilley, a director who most notably worked with Kendrick Lamar on the outstanding videos for “These Walls” and “Alright,” the latter recently nominated for a Grammy in the Best Music Video category. The video for “No Chill” is set in the heart of Toyko, and Tilley brings it to life with an almost futuristic vision that still captures the vibe that is offered on the track. Vic, Skrillex, and crew roam the streets with mischief on their mind and zero fucks to give. The opening of the video relays a youthful message that caters to “no rules” and is all about “self-expression.” Vic even turns up holding a mannequin head. Is that you, Martha?
Experience the world of no chill in the video above. The song is available for purchase on iTunes. Vic Mensa is currently at work on his debut album, Traffic, which is due out later this year. If you haven't yet, check out Vic's latest track, “Danger.”
