Lance Skiiiwalker teams up with Nick Hakim for “In The World”
The Chicago talent makes a big return with new music.
Last week, Top Dawg Entertainment marched through April with five new cuts from Zacari, SiR, Reason, Ab-Soul, and Isaiah Rashad, making fans more than excited for what’s to come next. Today, we get to check out a new single from Lance Skiiiwalker titled “In The World,” which features assistance from Nick Hakim, and sees the collaborators take front and center stage on matters of inspiration during times when you feel like quitting:
I know it’s hard, to keep on pushin’, you’ve come this far, don’t let the voices steal your vision/
You’ve got too much to do, I hear my grandmother whisper, you’ve got too much to do, she said, “don’t let the reaper tell ya, just get under…”/
The FRGN-SPCMN and Amaire Johnson-produced cut comes with a trippy visual directed by Danielle Takahashi, which showcases various levels of human nature, some presented in more abstract form than others — waking up and going to work, making love, living through natural disasters, and more. Lance and Nick’s animated faces can then be seen floating in space.
“In The World” marks what is presumably the first official release from Lance Skiiwalker since he dropped his debut studio album Introverted Intuition back in 2016. In a past interview with Complex, the Chicago artist-producer spoke on what it meant to be a part of the TDE dynasty:
Honestly, I kinda see TDE as the X-Men. Like Top being Xavier, and all of us being mutants in a way. We all have our own different talents. X-Men have their own skill sets, you know what I’m saying? We are all different from each other, but we are all great. And honestly, that’s how I feel about us. We are all different with our sounds, but we are all great with our sounds. I feel like we are going to our own realm.
