Lil West is one of our favorite new artists. The 20-year-old from Delaware—alongside a crew of producers—makes genre-bending music that's formed out of scraps of trap, emo, EDM, and more. Back in May, we described him as a Noisey Next artist who was "forging rap's strange future." And now we're beyond excited to premiere his latest video and song "No More," a dreamy music video that we created with our partners at SoundCloud as part of the Noisey X SoundCloud Video Singles series.

"No More," which was produced by Distance Decay with co-production by Hovenchy, is a lush, trippy track and the beautiful video matches its aesthetic. Of the visual, Noisey director Justin Staple said this: "Lil West wanted to capture the same natural emotional essence that purveys throughout his deeply personal new single 'No More.' We talked about placing him in a natural setting that would expose the raw and vulnerable parts of the song. So I thought, "why don't we leave the east coast behind and head out to Malibu?" He caught an 8 AM flight out to LA and by 2 PM we were filming on various formats deep in the canyons of Malibu. As the sun set behind him for the final takes we knew we made something special."
