Lupe Fiasco is doing the not-particularly-surprising thing and serving it up old school-style in the video for his new single “Old School,” which sees him reflecting on how his hometown of Chicago has changed from, y’know, the good ol’ days. Featuring an almost blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance from vocal guest Ed Sheeran, the video mostly takes place against animated backgrounds in Chi-Town, making good use of intercut footage to paint a portrait of how the city has evolved.
It’s a sweet and nostalgic clip that fits the breezy vibe of the song.
Watch it up top.
