Tensions have been high on Chicago's South Side lately, says cinematographer DGainz, who shot this video for Lil Chris and West Side-based group M.I.C.. A change of scene may be one of the reasons DGainz worked on the clip, but the major reason is that the guys of M.I.C. are talented. Deggzy Beatz-produced "Same Shit, Different Day" has a serene, reflective sound, emphasizing the melodicism that seems so much a part of the city's current movement. M.I.C.'s tape Next2Blow dropped recently, and it's one of the strongest Chicago releases in some time. In addition to Lil Chris' solo cut, tracks like "K-Town Playground" and Mikey Dollaz feature "All We Know is Drill" show the group's range.
