Chicago musician Nez—half of the production duo Nez & Rio—has teamed up with Schoolboy Q on his new song, “Wild Youngster.”
On the track, Q drops bouncy bars over dirty deep house beats. “How I get the big crib price, n***a, woah / Wonder what them M’s feel like, n***a, woah / Can I come again like Christ, n***a, woah,” he spits. In the accompanying black-and-white video, which features a cameo from Vic Mensa, the rappers perform on a soundstage alongside a troupe of models.
“I want to make people feel again. I want to make people dance. I’m creating my universe through sound,” Nez told the FADER. “[It’s] the feeling I got visiting Paris during fashion week and going to the afterparties. In my head, I was thinking, ‘What would Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss be partying to in the ’90s with Gianni Versace?’”
“House music started in Chicago, it has always had a major impact on me because that’s the music that we grew up listening and partying to,” he added.
