Random Axe may be best known, as Sean Price puts it, for delivering “…aggressive content, no love letter rhymes and raps about chicks. Just a whole lot of druggin’ and thuggin’, that’s it.” But even with Black Milk’s beat knocking and while delivering verses designed to rattle your bones, they take a moment in the video for “Random Call” to show their lighter side. Guilty Simpson, straight-faced, earnestly delivers his verse while playing video games. Black Milk grinds so hard that he can’t take a moment away from making beats to spit.
And Sean P, man, takes it to another level. He rides a Segway. He, I believe, raps while baking a Transformers cake. He jousts. And to top it all off, each man ends up at a mailbox, gets stuffed in the trunk of a car, and is taken to a mysterious studio to, presumably, record this project. Not your average video, to say the least. Todd Angkasuwan’s decision to make each man half-human, half-animated seems curious at first, but works out well in the end.
Random Axe is selling for $1.99 on Amazon, folks. That’s a pretty good deal.
