[Video] Donnie Trumpet: “Don’t Leave” (Feat. Vic Mensa)

Chicago’s own Donnie Trumpet stays busy. After last week, which saw him drop a project, Loopie, and appear on Mike Golden’s song “Hey Jane” with fellow Save Money member Vic Mensa, Donnie is back with a video for “Don’t Leave”, another turn with Mensa handling the rap end of things. The video, shot by Naveen Chaubel, is a bit of a mystical dream that starts off with a ballerina performing at the foot of his bed, beckoning him to stay, as he knows he has to walk away. The experience leads to a very ethereal, zero gravity moment of reconciliation and reflection that is especially on point thanks to the talented director, Chaubel. This is the second time in a week that we’ve heard something new from the pair of former Kids These Days members, who have blossomed over the past year in their own individual lanes that have continued to get bigger by the day. Start your day off right with some Donnie Trumpet and Vic Mensa, “Don’t Leave” streaming below.
