Mediocre Haircut Crew's omarKENOBI gets "LOST"

It’s no secret that the alliance between hip-hop trio Mediocre Haircut Crew and producer Fauxe has been a blessing upon the local scene – not just in terms of prolificacy, but also when in comes to sheer virtuosity. This time, the rapper-producer partnership sees MHC’s omarKENOBI flying solo through a new music video and single that’s equal parts hypnotising and eclectic.

 

 

Firing a prodigious amount of bars in a vivid, stream-of-consciousness-esque flow, omarKENOBI’s dynamic shifts between raid vocal percussives and auto-tune-smothered vocals are buoyed along on Fauxe’s fleet of teeming sounds. Local motion graphics designer Imran Yusof, the brains behind the visuals for MHC’s “SUBURBIA” music video, lends his hand to the surreal, emotionally charged song with brain-batteringly strobing visuals, which coincide with the different musical phases of the song in interesting ways.
