It’s hard to describe rap artist Komrade’s video. It shows a paranoid, nerdy looking guy reading from a book that looks like The Bible while ranting to people on street corners and city parks. He’s then seen smoking like a chimney in a dank room, building what one can assume is a bomb. It’s a dark and uncanny video. The song comes off very Eminem-esque. The overall audio/visual experience is a bit surreal.
The song itself is ok– the key redeeming quality being Komrade’s rap skills which are on point. The subject matter is very macabre, and not really all that appealing. The video itself is a bit disconcerting. However the vid ends with a bang (no pun intended)–succeeding in piquing the watcher’s interest. It shows the main character leaving a bag with what appears to be a bomb inside in a city square. During the last few seconds of the video we see people running away in a panic– which leaves you wondering what happened. Was it really a bomb? Did anyone get hurt? Does the villain get caught? The vid ends on a high note; however the suspenseful ending is not enough compensate for its frenetic visuals and strange vibe.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
