Mint Lab Astronauts “A New Dope”
All spring and dating back to the end of #Chiberia, the Mint Lab Astronauts have kept things fresh with a steady stream of dope new releases. Up next is, well, a rather dope one called “A New Dope” – the title track to the Chicago duo’s upcoming summer project that these tracks have all been leading up to.
For “A New Dope” it gets the proper premiere with this smooth new video above, directed by Atrio, that gives each brother some Wes Anderson-esque centered face-time as they each rhyme. I rock with the clean aesthetic and the words behind it. The video concludes somewhat ambiguously, which I also rock with because all the way to the final scene you can interpret it the way you want. I’d love to hear the explanation from either j.pak or pak.one. Needless to say, M.L.A. is one of the Chicago artists I’m most excited about so give these guys the click and see/hear for yourself.
