Killer Mike’s video for “Big Beast,” featuring Bun B, T.I. and Trouble (who does not appear), does not fit the prototypical rapper heist/strip club narrative. Instead, it shares more with Nicolas Winding Refn’s getaway flick of 2011, Drive, replete with a robbery gone wrong, over-the-top gore and a violent scene in the strippers’ dressing room—except that cash isn’t the currency, and the dancers aren’t voracious for singles. Watch the whole strange thing unfold in the nine-minute-clip, surprising even until the Reagan-masked driver is revealed at the very end. Killer Mike’s new album, R.A.P. Music, is in stores now.
