New York rapper MIKE and UK artist Jadasea have teamed up to release a new music video called “Regrets,” featuring a discordant, heavy yet hazy instrumental from producer rbchmbrs. The video is a lo-fi affair shot during a recent trip to England for a one-off show.
MIKE showcases just how diverse his easy-going flow can be – he can bring his introspective rhymes to essentially any beat thrown at him (see his Adult Swim single “NUMBERED DAYZ” and Tears of Joy project for more).
The video follows the crew’s sprinter van as the group hangs out in the countryside. MIKE opens the track by asking, “How could it hurt me again? / Papa proud how I’m working the pen” before Jadasea closes with an equally complex verse. Despite the track’s title, MIKE and Jadasea seem to be in high spirits throughout the video. “Regrets” is not the first collaboration between these two rappers, they also released an EP titled OLD EARTH in February. The offering follows Jadasea’s EP Half-Life, which was produced entirely by King Krule under his Edgar the Beatmaker moniker.
For more new music, MIKE’s frequent collaborator Navy Blue, known by most as skateboard extraordinaire Sage Elsesser, dropped new minimalist visuals for “Simultaneously Bleeding.“
