Chance The Rapper has shared a new video for ‘A Bar About A Bar’ – check it out below.
The video sees Chance and Vic Mensa doing writing exercises together while Chicago-based painter Nikko Washington works in the background.
Both Chance and Mensa have previously worked together on the track ‘Cocoa Butter Kisses’ from Chance’s breakout 2013 mixtape ‘Acid Rap’, and on Mensa’s song ‘Tweakin”. Last year, they collaborated on a track called ‘Shelter’ with Wyclef Jean.
Recently, the pair also shared another collaboration via ‘Writing Exercise #3: Wraith’.
Mensa recently teased that yet more new music from him and Chance would be coming soon, telling Complex: “Me and Chano have been working on a lot of music for a while now, there’s much more to come.
As Chance raps his piece in their latest video, the scene he describes starts to materialise around him, and Washington creates the story through his art.

In the video for the song, artist Naïla Opiangah paints on a canvas behind him. The pair met during a trip to Accra, Ghana and have recently opened a contemporary art project together called ‘Child Of God’ at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
He also appeared on the soundtrack for Space Jam: A New Legacy, linking up with John Legend and Symba for the track ‘See Me Fly’, and on Smoko Ono’s afrobeat-inspired ‘Winners’. His long-awaited team-up with R&B legend Dionne Warwick, ‘Nothing’s Impossible’, was also finally released last year.
