In the video, Future appears haunted by his younger self. He sits alone in an empty diner, where the camera cleverly captures a young boy's image in the reflection of Future's sunglasses, but when it cuts to a wider shot the boy is nowhere to be seen. When he suddenly does appear, the two stare face-to-face as if Future were being confronted by his past.
Near the halfway point, the video flashes back to a moment when Future witnessed two men break into his house and rob a woman (purportedly his mother) at gunpoint. The memory hangs over him as he sits drinking out of a soda cup in the diner, and he eventually makes his way back to that house and to that moment as an adult. "Use Me" appears on the second of Future's two recent album, HNDRXX. Watch the cliphere.

In the video, the group plays the song against a sky blue background while various shots of London flash in between their performance. Showing arcades, graffiti-tagged streets, train yards and more, "Say Something Loving" is a visual compilation of everything that makes up England's largest metropolis.
Besides showing places, the video also reflects the city's young, diverse population. Headshots, action shots, and more romantic shots intersect the band's performance to underscore a message of inclusivity. The video has even has been washed in an early 1990s video recorder effect to give it a nostalgic feel. Watch the videohere.
Aoki recently posted his new remix of the theme to Ghost In The Shell. "This is a big day for me," he wrote on Facebook. "Especially for teenage youth me when I first watched the anime Ghost In The Shell that planted the seeds for my imagination and obsession for Sci-fi android life AI singularity and later the blueprints towards my Neon Future ideology."

After meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner on Friday (March 3rd), the two had an additional conversation over the weekend. "Our talks were unsuccessful," Chance said. "Governor Rauner still won't commit to giving Chicago's kids a chance."
Chance illustrated how Illinois had specifically increased funding in other cities besides Chicago. "Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions," he said. "If the governor does not act, CPS will be forced to end school 13 days early, which means over 380,000 kids will not have adult supervised activities in June and could possibly be put in harm's way."
