Brooklyn rapper and sLums member MIKE has been sporadically releasing music over the past year, debuting work that’s been as solid as ever like his “NUMBERED DAYZ” Adult Swim single and collaboration with UK rapper Jadesea titled “Regrets.” His knack for dropping gems of wisdom and being at the center of his ever-talented group of friends has never been more apparent than with his latest “Fortune Teller” music video.
Don’t worry, this visual was shot in New York City during September 2019, just months after MIKE released his critically-acclaimed Tears of Joy full-length. In it, MIKE taps in with friend Medhane, acts as the hype-man for his YOUNG WORLD showcase and more. The track was produced by DJ Blackpower. There’s even a nice callback to the Brotherhood of the Traveling Boston Hat from that infamous Earl Sweatshirt “EAST” video. In the video’s description, the rapper hints at new music, writing, “new slaps ??? soon?”
Watch the full visual above. With the current climate, it’s better than ever to tap into new rap movements and discover artists who may go overlooked due to independently dropping projects, so we’ll leave a list of some of MIKE’s contemporaries to listen to during the times of social distancing.
