With the first video off his latest project Voodoo Kit, the prolific Nebraska emcee takes us on a captivating visual journey. 1000bottles/ Zombie Dust combines 2 of the joints from his latest EP, a collaborative effort with producer Killer Kane. In the video, Sleep pays homage to Omaha youth James Scurlock, a young man slain by a racist bar owner during the George Floyd protests in Omaha this past spring.
Peep the video for 1000bottles/ Zombie Dust here :
The stunning cinematography was captured by visual guru Big Mike from the woods, holding it down for his fellow Nebraskan artist. The tracks sport Kane’s muffled percussion and dusty loops with slight melodies to pull it all together. The video shows Sleep and co. posted at the cigar bar, which transitions into juxtaposed imagery of industrial components against the warm colors of the autumnal leaves falling by the side.
