Earlier this week, Chance the Rapper took to his socials to unveil some behind-the-scenes footage of his forthcoming Star Line Gallery project, showcasing some of the mixtape’s suspected featured artists including Lil Wayne and T-Pain. Chance then took to his Instagram to tease “Buried Alive” two days after dropping the project’s teaser, asking “should I drop a video?” – today, he dropped the video.

“Buried Alive” is a YouTube-exclusive offering, not yet available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music or any other DSPs.

“I was in a dark space, between a rock and a hard place / Knew I was alive when my heart raced / Buried alive, but very alive / They’d be very surprised to find out Harry survived / The boy who lived got tied up for marryin’ / Tryna ride off into the sunset with nary goodbye,” he begins on the jazzy beat.

In the black-and-white visual, Chance – suited up in a technical spacesuit – delivers the track while trapped in a box that reads “Star Line, Destination: The Titan.”

“I was in a dark place, it was me and my pen / None of my friends, none of my kin / None of my weapons, one of my limbs / One of my arms, I made a beat with my elbow first,” he continues.

Once he escapes confinement, it’s revealed he’s on a spaceship, and a “Star Line” title card hits the screen.

“Buried Alive” is not available on any DSPs at the time of writing and is exclusively available to stream on YouTube. Watch the full video above.
