Why did it take this fucking long for my favorite track off MIDI Murder to get the music video treatment? Seriously, though, there’s snow on the ground and I’m sure filming on the beach was a pain in the ass when it was that cold out. Was a weirdly timed release during summer intentional? Am I about to dissect the intentions of a simple rap video? Should I stop while I’m ahead? Surveys say yes.
I’m just going to assume that the people involved and the powers that be decided to let Hot Sugar‘s beatz trickle westward for a little while longer, slowly converting listeners across the land. My homie in Portland keeps posting MIDI Murder tracks on Facebook because he just saw the light.
Yeah, but that doesn’t make any sense, either, because the vid for “I Don’t Wanna B Judged” was released earlier this year, and the style and narrative was way more complex than “Leverage”, IMO. Check it out when you have a chance.
I’m at a loss, then. I always had the feeling that “Leverage” was one of the more serious tracks on an EP that seemed entrenched in the murkiness of web culture, albeit with occasional bouts of lucidity. Maybe that’s why they all agreed upon the simplistic style of just filming some rappers rapping. Fits more with the track’s tone anyways.
