New MusicContributor JonesComment

West Coast experimental hip hop trio clipping. drop a video for the track "Get Up," which features one of the strangest instrumentals on their latest album, CLPPNG. The bars aren't anything to shrug at either as Daveed Diggs delivers one rapid fire line after another.

However, we're talking about a video here: Co-directors Carlos Lopez Estrada and Cristina Bercovitz bring this vid a simple but very effective concept. There's an eerie, red glow that pulsates behind Diggs' stiff, lifeless body. On the hook, we get these blindingly bright close-ups that look like he's about to be taken away to Heaven or something. The assumption that he's on death's door is backed up by what seems to be a bleeding bullet wound that becomes more obvious as the video progresses.
