21-year-old Brooklyn rapper MIKE has put out a career’s worth of music before even hitting the legal drinking age. His most recent effort Weight of the World was rooted in overcoming the burden of grief and digging deeper into his craft as both an emcee and producer (under his DJ Blackpower pseudonym). Released back in June, the project made our mid-year “The 25 Best Albums of 2020… So Far” round-up for its thoughtfulness and experimentation. Today MIKE returns with his new “No, No!” music video.

The visual was produced and edited by Devlin Claro-Resetar and shot by Godfred Sedano with cinematography that’s warmth bids one final farewell to New York City summer evenings. (Past efforts from the duo include Caleb Giles’ “Diamonds”, Maxo’s “Time” and Standing On The Corner’s “G-E-T-O-U-T!!”) MIKE and his friends practice some social distancing and hang out on the Brooklyn waterfront. The video follows past efforts like MIKE and UK rapper Jadasea‘s Old Earth and ABOUT TIME collaborations. MIKE also appeared on Black Noi$e’s Oblivion.

“A lot of the project was bringing myself back to life because a lot of times I was working on it, I feel like I was not really being transparent with myself — not really paying attention to my feelings,” he told HYPEBEAST during out “MIKE Wants to Be Present Without Bearing the Weight of the World” feature. “When you’re not being honest with other people you’re low-key numbing parts of yourself you feel me? That sh*t eats at certain parts of your growth. A lot of it was me trying to be present in this world.”

In more music updates, Megan Thee Stallion shared an op-ed in The New York Times titled “Why I Speak Up for Black Women.”
