Earlier this year, the Brooklyn rapper/producer Ka released the heavy, meditative The Night’s Gambit, one of the year’s best rap albums. Ka doesn’t just make all his own beats and self-release his albums; he also directs and edits the noirish, atmospheric black-and-white videos he makes for his songs. The new clip for the tingly, percussive “You Know It’s About” is the latest one. It’s mostly images of Ka haunting various nondescript Brooklyn streetcorners, fixing the camera with a thousand-yard stare, but it’s weirdly mesmerizing in its own way. Watch it below.

The Night’s Gambit is out now on Ka’s own Iron Works label.
