Alchemist's Zombie Rap Video For "Lose Your Life"

Animated by Devin Flynn, who does Y'all So Stupid and the credit sequence from the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie, and the animation parts of this which was posted awhile back. This is way better than any of those. It's maybe the coolest thing I've seen in awhile. Stuffy but fluid animation of faces melting and monsters attacking. Rapper Jadakiss rips his tongue out and wears it as a tie. Particularly affecting is seeing an animated Prodigy of Mobb Deep busting out of jail Mr. Hyde style (P's currently serving three and a half years in jail).

Awesome video! I would've missed this.

Something about this type of Flash animation works for me. Smooth enough not too look cheesy, but still digital-ish. The Adult Swim show Superjail is sort of like this too. Have you seen it?

Dude, I LOVE superjail. Christy Karacas rules. His animation style is like everything I've ever wanted out of cartoons.
have you seen this?

Shit, I hadn't seen that, thanks. That was so cool.

There's a good lengthy interview with him and the two other Superjail creators here. They mention this animator who you should check out, Vince Collins, who does hippified, proto-Superjail, shit-morphing-into-other-shit animations. This is his best short.

woah, that short is amazing. countless vaginas!
and the interview is cool too, I never knew all those people's work was so pervasive in all this great stuff.
