Last night, Earl gave us the latest visual from his highly anticipated studio debut, Doris.
The video, "Hive," is the definition of menace. Bass-heavy production reminiscent of his mixtape, Earl, is the perfect backdrop for the youngest, and arguably most talented, member of Odd Future to ride around suburban Los Angeles with masked goons on bikes. The night gets even darker when a guest verse by OF affiliate Vince Staples follows the last hook by Casey Veggies, lyrically stunning every viewer with the same craft that got original listeners jaws dropping on the song "ePAR."
The video is well-shot and darkly appealing. If "Hive" is any indication of Doris, it's gonna be the rap album of the year. Out August 20th, Doris is available for pre-order now on iTunes. In the meantime, watch, and then watch again, "Hive" above.
