Watch the video for JPEGMAFIA's 'Polly' (NSFW)

JPEGMAFIA's most recent album is called "Communist Slow Jams," but as this video for 'Polly' shows, his music is much more than that name implies.

Shot in the woods, the clip shows the rapper performing choreography with a knife in one hand and coddling a Confederate flag as he raps about colonialism, killing democracy, and "trust-fund kids who think rap started with '8 Mile.'" But it's much more than an exploration of nature: Parts are in slo-mo with the color inverted, like it's being chewed up in a VCR. Snippets of porn are spliced in at random.

It's really something. Watch it below.
