What you really need to know about this new video is: it's Pharoahe Monch featuring Jill Scott. It's also important to note that Pharoahe did not draw for Jilly's big guns (pipes) for just any old track. No, you only call up the vocal National Guard in a real state of emergency--in this case a highly personal track that takes the viewer through not one but two near-death experiences. The video, directed by Terence Nance, likewise makes excellent use of strong camera-work and some very simple visual elements to make the out-of-body moment real for the viewer. Watch and you may know more about how the world looks from behind Pharoahe's eyes than you ever thought possible. His LP W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) is available on iTunes now.
