Looking Back :: Sill Makes Powerfully Moving Video For ‘Ego Death’

After dropping the over the top video for Crazy 88, you’d imagine that most artists would double down on the initial style and aesthetic laid out.  Sill, however, has decided to do his College of Hip-Hop Knowledge brethren proud by following up with a powerful, thought-provoking music video for his second single, Ego Death.  With the help of Nvision FilmsSill takes the concepts of self-reflection and self-sabotage he explores lyrically to a different level with the cinematic narrative presented.  The video starts off normal enough, subtly introduces what seems like innocent visual trickery, only to turn that trickery on its head in the most compelling way possible.  This is a serious candidate for video of the year, and I hope that all involved consider presenting it to the Austin Music Video Festival in December.  Check out the video yourself, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others to do the same.
