Watch Madeintyo’s New Video, “Skateboard P,” Featuring Big Sean

Next month, Madeintyo will be the opening act on Big Sean’s I Decided. Tour, which is quite the feat for a guy who–a year ago–was still relatively unknown. The Hawaii native–sorry, he’s not actually from T(ok)yo–released his debut project, Thank You, Mr. Tokyo, in August of last year, and one of its standout cuts found the “Uber Everywhere” rapper co-opting yet another popular concept and making it his own: the allure of Pharrell Williams, known to his fans fondly as Skateboard P.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Pharrell, who is now in his forties, still serves as inspiration for young artists. He’s a unicorn-esque figure, someone that can make hearts melt with his singing voice, then turn around and bare grilled teeth in a Pusha T video. Who wouldn’t enjoy that duality? Madeintyo channels it in the video above alongside Big Sean, who fittingly has quite the guest verse on the tail end of the record.
