Since #10Day dropped, I think I’ve told everyone I know at one point or another that Chance The Rapper has quickly become one of my favorite rappers in the game. Two days ago, he released the official visuals for “Hey Ma,” (appropriately timed for Mother’s Day), and as expected, the video is another perfect example of why Chance is one of the best young artists doing it.
Just as with “Brain Cells,” the official “Hey Ma” video is incredibly creative and refreshing. Directed by Elijah Alvarado, the video centers on a collage of photos of young Chance growing up intertwined with shots of Chance now, framed in the same way with a hand holding up the “photos.” The concept is brilliant and equally well-executed, capturing the fun, reflective spirit of the song.
Check out the lyrics below, and be sure to download #10Day if you’ve yet to do so. It’s without a doubt one of my top five favorite projects of 2012 so far.
