Ric Wilson reflects on the past in the video for “No Hands”

He revisits his cancelled appearance at Governors Ball 2019.

Ric Wilson has dropped an introspective video for his 2018 loosie, “No Hands.”

Directed by Henry DaCosta and Josh Charow, the clip revisits this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival in New York, where the rapper was set to play his “first show” in the Big Apple “Coming from a marginalized area of Chicago, you think the whole world is Chicago for so long,” he says in the opening monologue, explaining the magnitude of the opportunity to play at the popular festival.

Unfortunately, Wilson never got the chance to perform at the Governors Ball as his set was cancelled due to a severe storm. “I feel like artists need to realize that bad things happen, and sometimes they’re not your fault,” he says in another monologue. “And I think the most important thing is how you respond to those bad things.” The visual then jumps between cinematic views of the Manhattan skyline to what his set would’ve looked like if it hadn’t rained.


Wilson previously dropped a touching video for “Yellowbrick.” Back in March, he released the loosie “Dan Ryan.”
