The new video from Detroit native Zelooperz is ominously titled “ISBD” (I Should Be Dead). As he hollers the song’s chorus, the Bulletproof Dolphin beat underneath glides and knocks around an eerie melody. The video is directed by RuffMercy, and features his signature moving portraits and neon animation style with a morbid twist.
The visuals match Zelooperz’s unorthodox rapping style and spells out the track’s dark mantra. The surreal paint and ink pen look of the video also brings to mind Zelooperz’s other medium-of-choice, painting.
Known for his affiliation with the prolific Bruiser Brigade squad, Z plays the wild card in a crew comprised of wild cards. “ISBD” is featured on “Bothic,” the much-anticipated follow up album to his 2014 project “Help.”
