Well, I won’t say much about this, except, it’s not often I encounter a hiphop artist I simply, immediately seem to click with, musically.
But Jedi Mind Tricks are one of the few – they’ve got a grittiness and and authenticity that I find striking and extremely hard-hitting.
This video is somewhat gorey – which of course also counts – but in the end it’s all about the emotions evoked from watching the thing. And here Jedi Mind Tricks scores top grades with a protagonist who’s just reacting because it’s all that’s left for him to do, but without any real hopes for the future. Survival is the game, pure and simple; the future is a bleak and endless struggle; there’s no god in heaven so get off your ass.
