Los Angeles-based experimental rap trio clipping. released the video for "Inside Out" from their second album and Sub Pop debut, CLPPNG. The clip is directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada and you can watch it above.

The video is surreal, with a headless man walking down the street as representations of the lyrics pop out of his head. It starts with a rabbit popping out in a puff of smoke and only gets stranger from there. As rapper Daveed Digs continues, everything from bottles of Sunny D to bullet shell casings fall out of the figure's head, and during the chorus he is repeatedly struck by lightning.

The song itself is a deadpan, dark satirization on murder in the streets. Digs' lyrics describe everything that happens leading up to the event, even the most mundane things he can see, before he gets to the actual killing. There's a chilling sense of routine to the hook, "murder on the outside everybody inside," and it bluntly hits the listener over the head with how common this situation really is.

CLPPNG is out now via Sub Pop Records. You can order the album on the Sub Pop web store and on Amazon.
