There’s a fine line between a music video and a short film, and B.o.B.‘s latest opus falls smack dab in the middle. Featuring a suspenseful narrative, attention-grabbing cinematography and copious CGI effects, Ricardo de Montreuil and Eliz Eskeranli‘s cinematic accompaniment to Through My Head feels like a summer sci-fi blockbuster compressed into six minutes. The record itself is an appropriately riveting complement to the action onscreen, with the artist delivering provocative political commentary (“If you I ruled the world, with my rules and sh*t / I’d prolly roll the Constitution up into a spliff.”) over his own atmospheric guitar loops. Underground Luxury, Bobby Ray’s third album via Grand Hustle/Atlantic, has yet to receive a drop date. As always, though, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
