LA whisper-beat producer Nosaj Thing released his third studio album Fated earlier this year. One of the best songs off that record was a new collaboration with Chance The Rapper called “Cold Stares.” (Who can forget their first, the secret track “Paranoia” on Chance’s Acid Rap?) Nosaj Thing brings his signature woozy, sensual production to a song that seems to deal extensively with mental health issues. Chance once again delivers a poignant verse with some backup from Chicago new soul group The O’My’s. TAKCOM’s riveting video for the song combines choreography with animation to recreate a chilling scene in a mental institution. Watch below.
