Last month, the former Das Racist rapper Kool A.D. gave us his Word O.K. mixtape, possibly the strongest of the many full-lengths he’s dropped since Das Racist broke up. “Tight,” one of the tape’s hightlights, has a tense and physical beat from Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick, and it’s also got verses from New York underground rap livewires Lakutis and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire. There’s not a whole lot to director Slack Barrett’s new video for the song; it’s just the three rappers and a few extras captured in sharp, clear black-and-white against a plain white wall. But the hallucinatory editing and the weirdo charisma of the performers make it a strangely entrancing piece of work. Check it out below.
