We don’t get to write about everything that happens in rap, but we do listen to a lot, so believe us when we say that Vic Mensa’s INNANETAPE is one of the most refreshing mixtapes of the year. Unsurprisingly, Vic shares our thoughts, so he had to let the corresponding visuals follow suit. The video for “YNSP” is a hark back to the days of the internet’s adolescence, when all images were distorted and “I have Netscape” wasn’t a self-deprecating joke. The video is definitely nostalgic, but it’s unique in that it doesn’t present the past as an unblemished fantasy-world. For Vic, the errors, inconsistencies and limitations don’t need to be downplayed or fetishized to enjoy the past. He and his crew revel in the weirdness, but they’re not “slumming it” or being ironic; they’re simply saying it was what it was. Watch below. He’s onto something.
