Busdriver - "Ego Death (feat. Aesop Rock + Danny Brown)" (video)

by Brice Ezell

10 July 2014

The ever-eccentric rapper Busdriver has just dropped his newest music video, "Ego Death", featuring contributions from Aesop Rock and Danny Brown.
 

“Ego Death”, the latest cut from the always-eccentric MC Busdriver, includes the phrase, “Playing patty-cake with Ira Glass.” (It also opens with the timeless question: “Is it sexier than torture?”) The song is indicative of the more song-oriented direction Busdriver has taken following his 2012 release, Beaus$Eros. Like many of the tunes on that record, his hyperspeed flows are anchored by simple hooks that provide continuity to his unmatched verbosity. Joined by Aesop Rock and the always zany Danny Brown, Busdriver once again proves there’s no one out there making rap music like his.
