“Everybody’s somebody’s everything/Nobody’s nothing,” is as profound a statement as it’s simplistic in concept. It’s also happens to be the chorus on Chance the Rapper‘s “Everybody’s Something” from his critically acclaimed Acid Rap project.

Today, the Chicago MC delivers a visual for the track that’s equally simple, yet effective. And that’s to be expected for an introspective track with quotes like “And why God phone die every time that I call on him?/If his son had a Twitter, I wonder if I would follow him.”

Chance examines society’s imperfections, and revisits moments where his own insecurities raised their ugly heads in a blacked out room. Projections of various societal ills shine on the MC and accentuate his lyrics in the process.

The SAVEMONEY affiliate also added a spin towards the end of the cut by placing a piano interpolation of the J. Dilla-produced Slum Village classic “Fall In Love,” which the song samples.
