Bring on the Illuminati and Freemason rumors! Another music video cryptically depicts pyramids and eyeballs with reckless neglect for the fragile psyches of the paranoid. Although, the more than casual fan will know Pharoahe’s been sliding that symbol onto our monitors since his “Oh No” days, so let’s move on.
“The Warning” is more than a 72-second, over-dramatized glimpse at Monch’s next album. The video attempts to attack our comfort zone and shed light on the frailties of our seemingly seamless world, a theme that will resonate throughout W.A.R. when it drops March 22, and who better to depict the death of idealism than the actor who breathed life into the ill-fated Stringer Bell. With that voice, Idris might be the anti-Morgan Freeman.
