A couple of weeks ago, the motormouthed L.A. rap expressionist Busdriver lined up fellow underground rap originals Aesop Rock and Danny Brown for a dense, wordy throwdown called “Ego Death.” In making the song’s video, director Strangeloop has congured a dystopic computer-animated vision in which a robot wanders abandoned street and encounters rapping specters. The three rappers get their own cartoon avatars; Brown, for instance, is a tooth-chipped floating skull with a virtual-reality headset, which seems about right. Check it out below.

Busdriver’s album Perfect Hair is out 9/9 on Big Dada.
