Not one for rainbows and sunshine, Detroit rapper Danny Brown has released the grim video for “Pneumonia,” the second track from his acclaimed new album Atrocity Exhibition to receive a visual treatment.
Directed by Evian Christ, the clip depicts Brown as a chain-suspended puppet, being dragged around and manipulated by an unseen, malevolent force. Vintage footage of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, as well as grainy instances of Brown in a suit behind a podium, are interspersed.
Brown is currently touring in support of Atrocity Exhibition. Find those dates here and watch “Pneumonia” above.
