JPEGMAFIA and Freaky mock The Donald, terrorize Bel Air, and troll American politics in the video for 'I Might Vote 4 Donald Trump'

Not long after the release of his excellent album "Black Ben Carson," some guest appearances and production on Abdu Ali's similarly scattered "Mongo," and a recent rarities-filled mix for the website Tiny Mix Tapes comes the latest provocation from JPEGMAFIA.

The fierce, often hilarious noise rapper—imagine some arch fusion of Paul Mooney, Willie D, and Rammellzee—just put out a video for a new song titled 'I Might Vote 4 Donald Trump,' featuring rapper Freaky (imagine Freestyle Fellowship and ICP collaborating) and a trappy, musique concrète beat. In the video, directed by Jeff Rettberg, you see JPEG and Freaky and friends riding around a Bel Air, Maryland cul-de-sac, waving and occasionally wearing Donald Trump signs as terrified suburban onlookers stare them down and one old, scary-ass white man peers from his window gripping a gun. Other clips overlook the group and suggest the surveillance state.

'I Might Vote 4 Donald Trump' will be on a collaborative EP with Freaky titled "Second Amendment." The video premiered over at Noisey along with an interview with JPEGMAFIA conducted by Action Bastard.
