Subtle Aggression Monopoly - BLIMP (Video)


Blimp is the new video from the consistently complex duo Subtle Aggression Monopoly. Dropped in the slow silence of Sunday night, July 30, it’s also the first sign of the group’s latest level up. Shot and directed by St. Louis short filmmaker, Mike Pruneau, Blimp is a black and white testament to the group’s lyrical prowess. The video’s simple look allows the duo and their lady companion, Deja Blue, to showcase their writing skills without too many effects or jump cuts distracting the viewer from what’s being said. The beat even drops out at the most difficult part of the P.O.E.T. X verse, just to show you how easy he can make a tongue twisting rhyme ‘Belly of the beast/I wanna feast on enemies/But really hippie/The only piece that I promote is better larva’ fit into 3 seconds. Following somewhat of a hiatus, the duo are working on a new project to follow their seminal album, Perennial Complex (FarFetched) and Wes Grey’s upcoming solo project, Blue Birth (to be released later in 2017). ‘We wanted to give something to the people who follow us since they haven’t heard much from us in a while,’ says Wes Ragland, the younger of the two emcees. The two hope to release more videos for the fans in the future as they build toward finishing their next project
