Flatlander directed the hell out of Death Grip‘s “Beware,” transforming the track’s Charles Manson-sampling intro into something out of Sweet Sweetback—MC Ride tearing out shirtless through the desert, perching on a dead tree like the man-vulture of the apocalypse. When the beat drops and Ride starts rapping, the aesthetic flips from past to future and Flatlander bathes our ex-military anti-hero in cosmic fireworks. It’s funny, Death Grips don’t seem angry here, they seem smart.
