When it comes to "Brilliant," the newest release from rising Chicago artist Theo Means, up is down: Theo elevates his music by deepening his lyrical content more than ever. The video is flashy but tightly structured, as Theo rides a metaphorical Trojan horse--as well as an on-point flow--on his way up rap's mountain. The motivation here is classic hip hop shit, and Theo runs circles around this Hi-Tek beat. Impressed? Be on the lookout for this up-and-comer over the next few weeks, as Theo drops a Chicago remix to the Cruel Summer hit "Clique" and participates in the WBML Cypher 3.0 on November 30. Keep your eyes peeled for this kid, because one thing's for sure: Theo Means is no sucker.
