  • This cut came together during a night time studio session with Mensa's producer Smoko Ono. "Me and [Smoko Ono] was in the studio one day and I'd made a different record, and then I was like, 'man, put on the beat, lemme just freestyle over over one of your beats,'" Mensa recalled to MTV News. "It was like middle of the night — we'd been in the studio all evening — I was talking s--- in the booth, and I said 'I feel that.'"

    Smoko Ono asked Mensa to repeat "Feel That" several times, and the rest was history.
  • The song's music video features Mensa in a fun-induced coma. "I see music in colors and this is one was like green, orange, purple, dark hues and that's what the video is," the rapper said.

    Mensa's close friend Chance The Rapper also features in the clip.
