Atlanta-based rapper Mercury has announced a new EP, FearMercury, which comes out December 7.

It opens with shots of Mercury smoking before cutting to clips of her rapping and skating around a photo studio. Check it out below.

“Freddie” is produced by FearDorian. In a statement, Mercury said, “‘Freddie’ is just a fun song I made because I wanted to dance. It makes me feel like when I first heard the original.”

She added of the FearMercury EP, “When I was making this project, I really just wanted to try something new. I’ve been really into drill recently, and my homie Nak [Na-Kel Smith] introduced me to Dorian, and I sent him a bunch of songs that I really loved listening to.”
