Bay Area rapper and SPIN favorite ISSUE — the tea-sipping, teetotaling, slow-rapping, absurdist hook machine (and E-40’s son to boot) — throws a tea party in his latest video. Posted up in a fancy garden, the MC sips beverage with some lovely ladies and raps about his favorite brew without ever removing his mysterious mask: “I be sippin’ tea / Tea is so good to me / Tea is so good, tea is so good / It doesn’t matter any more.” Producer Lil Ocean’s beat stutters and contorts like some kind of #BASED Portishead remix. “Mask on the Moon” is featured on ISSUE’s Liquid Wisdom, out now for free download on Greedhead.
