Charge It To The Game’s “Bite Me” Is Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen
Fat Tony and Kyle Mabson defy all expectations — again.
Charge It To The Game (a.k.a. Houston rapper Fat Tony and Los Angeles producer/D.I.Y. guy Kyle Mabson's new Run the Jewels-style supergroup) shared an only wonky-seeming video for "Bite," featuring Hemlock Ernst (a.k.a. Sam Herring from Future Islands), the lead single off their recently-released debut EP The Urban Hall of Fame. It features a bobble-headed Bart Simpson and Street Fighter's Chun-Li (played by Brittney Scott) are fully absorbed in their video game in the back of a van that is being tailed by an odd cast of characters (the easter bunny, a juggler, a man wearing just a g-string, and so on) — and we say "wonky-seeming" because, as the boys explained in an email to The FADER, it is supposed to be different.
"[We] wanted to make a video that didn't look like anything for a song that didn't sound like anything right now," they wrote. "[We] think we got it done." Agreed.
