This, right here, is the best music video I’ve seen in a long-ass time. Philly rap firebreather Freeway and party-starting Pittsburgh producer Girl Talk have teamed up on a new mixtape called Broken Ankles, and today they’ve gifted us with the video for “Tolerated,” the Enon-sampling song they debuted onstage last year. The clip is structured like the Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” video — Greg Gillis and Free walking down the street and crashing into randoms — but it quickly devolves into Fangoria-ready kung-fu battles and wedding brawls. Waka Flocka Flame shows up and drops a verse while chewing on a human arm. Waka Flocka Flame’s pet vulture is not the best part of this video; I don’t know if I can put things any more plainly than that. Allen Cordell directs, and his fight-choreography game is on point. Watch it below. Seriously, it’s great.
