The Philly rapper Michael Stewart, known more often as Mic Stew, is back at it with his first new single and music video in a few years, for the breezy yet contemplative track “His Whole Thing.”

The video begins by panning in on Stewart, walking around a cookie-cutter suburban neighborhood. The scene flickers and suddenly Stewart is walking through the streets of Philly, walking underneath the Market-Frankford El. The whole video and the song itself reflects on modern life and the American dream. Stewart philosophizes about the state of the world before landing on a final line of his pondering: “Trying to live up to a thirty second video of someone getting married being happy that you knew in high school.” From there the whole song settles into itself. Stewart gets more specific and personal in his second verse, reflecting on his music and his life.

This music video for “His Whole Thing” is just the tip of the iceberg for what Stewart has planned over this month. This week he’ll be releasing another song, “Quentin Quarantino,” as part of the lead-up to his upcoming album fe.fi.fo-the release date for the album will be announced later this month. Be sure to follow Stewart for more updates and sneak previews of his upcoming work.
