I would mess around with the Stylize Filters, like the Vectorize Color, Edge Work or Line Art.

I just ran a test by doing a color key on the color I didn't want. Added a Matte magic to smooth it out. Duplicated the clip and deleted those two filters and then added the Edge Work to the clip on top and it looked pretty cool.

Howdy,

The person rapping might have been keyed, or could just be against a even background. Threshold has been applied, then the result was colorized and blended in with the background comp. Nothing vectorized.

If we assume it is a Chroma Key off of a background, it looks to me like you could then do a luminance key, for the shape, then tint the image of the person for the first dark tone, then add another layer on top of that with the luminance key adjusted, and tinted just a bit lighter. All of this on a bright background.
