The great New York underground rapper Despot has been destroying other people’s songs for years, but he’s barely released anything under his own name. That could change soon, though. Despot’s “House Of Bricks” single is getting some serious notice, and his long-developing album We’re All Excited may actually come out before we’re all dead. Ratatat’s Evan Mast, who produced the song, also directed its excellent new video, which FADER just posted. Mast filmed the video at Despot’s childhood apartment, and it stars the man’s entire family, as well as a falcon and an iguana. His mom gets to roll a joint on camera. Watch it below, and understand that you would definitely watch an indie film about this clan.
“House Of Bricks” is out at iTunes right now.
