Say what you will about Kool Keith, he very rarely plays the same game twice. The legendary Bronx emcee has continued to innovate his sound over the course of his 30-year career, and his latest project Feature Magnetic is no exception.
The spacey production and tag-team rhymes that Keith and MF DOOM bring to the song “Super Hero” made it a standout when it debuted earlier in the summer, and he’s found a kindred spirit in director/artist Kris Merc. Merc has brought a pop art sensibility to videos for De La Soul and others in the past, but he’s never made anything like the candy-colored psychedelia that is the “Super Hero” video.
This is a stop-motion haven that you can see both of these men relishing. Stop motion astronauts run around Doom’s iconic mask while colors flash in and out of Keith and Doom’s comic book laden rhymes. It fucks with your head in the most beautiful way possible. Check it out above.
