Vic Mensa and Skrillex Head to Tokyo in "No Chill" Video

Last summer Vic Mensa and Skrillex teamed up to drop “No Chill” on the world. Now they’ve brought the song back with a video that takes their audience on a disorienting tour of the Tokyo Underworld. Directed by Colin Tilley, who recently helmed Kendrick’s “Alright," the video begins with a narration introducing the underground scene before taking viewers right into the fray of neon lights, hoverboards, and copious amounts of chrome decor.

The video presents a similar side of the city as A$AP Rocky’s “LSD” video, but fueled by MDMA and cocaine rather than psychedelics, with Skrillex and Mensa taking their party from the streets to the underground and all the way up to the silent, sobering elevator ride that nights of such indulgence usually end with.

It’s been a big few days for Vic Mensa, who got control of the aux cord at Kanye’s Madison Square Garden fashion show last Thursday and played his new track “Danger” for the sold-out crowd. He was also noticeably absent from the new version of "Wolves" that Kanye released on The Life of Pablo after performing the track last year with Yeezy and Sia on Saturday Night Live. Kanye's promise to "fix" the track could mean Vic wil be back on the record in the near future.
