Good lord Mobb Deep’s “Dead Man’s Shoes” is gruesome, probably unnecessarily so. If you don’t have the stomach for appendages spouting blood, I wouldn’t recommend pressing play. The clip has been out for a minute now yet the song and vid are still going strong in my rotation. I guess the visuals really do describe the duo’s lyrics but it’s just a shock to see Prodigy chopping up bodies with a machete. We should all pray he’s not living his songs anymore because I’m pretty sure disposing cadavers in a trash compacter will be considered a parole violation.
