The New York trio of Meyhem Lauren, Heems and Action Bronson is back with the visual offering for the tag-team single “Special Effects.” The video was directed by Heems himself, as you can read about his thought process for the minimalistic piece below. Just the three emcees, a projector and some special effects — but it works. Press play above to enjoy.
I’m very lazy, so I wanted it to be where we live and watch movies on a projector. We live in a large loft in this old building in South Williamsburg. There was a SAMO tag on the wall but the Hasidic owners washed it away a couple of years ago. I wanted a pretty straightforward video with ‘special effects’ from visual jockey equipment [Suri's roommate] Fernando Eguchi would mess around with interspersed with footage from films Action, Meyhem and I like: Bad Lieutenant, Deep Cover, and Mr. India.
