Detroit's Danny Brown is still not quite finished augmenting and polishing Atrocity Exhibition, his most recent album. The rapper has unveiled a new video for the song "Lost," which was originally released on the 2016 LP.

The video is uncomfortably grim, featuring jerky black-and-white footage of an anxious narcotic enterprise, scattered with close-up images of boiling money, ambiguous drug paraphernalia, vomit, and unsightly fish-eye visuals of Brown's grills. He meanders throughout the scene, wielding a knife and looking suspiciously at intruders. The clip has an artistic sense to it, a disturbing stylistic combination of arthouse and film noir.

The song itself is relentless and raw, featuring Brown's caricatural voice over a simple beat with a vocal sample from Lena Lim's "Flame of Love", which serves to emphasize the uneasy feeling in the film.

Earlier this year, the rapper collaborated with actor / comedian Jonah Hill to release an absurdist and satirical video for another song off of Atrocity Exhibition, titled "Ain't It Funny."
