Danny Brown shares politically-charged video “Pneumonia” — watch

on October 13, 2016, 10:35am

Today, Danny Brown unboxed a new music video for “Pneumonia”, a highlight off his recently released fourth album, Atrocity Exhibition.

Mirroring the dark, menacing tone of the Evian Christ-produced track, the clip finds Brown shackled and suspended in the air by chains like he’s having to endure some kind of cruel punishment, or worse, lynching. There’s also old footage of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush thrown in between scenes, suggesting the Detroit rapper’s making both political and social statements with his choice of imagery — perhaps referencing the Republican party and its history of deep-seated racism.

Watch it below.
