Obey the Crooks – Third Eye ft. A.Y.E. & MAXJULLIAN [Video]

Calgary, ABHipHopCanada has teamed up with Obey the Crooks for the debut of their dope new “Third Eye” video. We know you’ve been waiting for it to drop and just want to get to watching it. But here’s the lowdown: The track features A.Y.E. and MAXJULLIAN. And it verges on posse-cut territory. MAXJULLIAN drops the first verse. Then OTC’s singer-producer, Samuel “Beach Season” Avant, switches things up by singing his verse. We love OTC  because they’re a rapper-singer duo. It’s an odd combination, and they own it.

Then the Crooks’ rapper half, Simon “Monski” Blitzer, whips out some really tight rhymes. And A.Y.E. closes the track while the boys destroy window panes, and burn things in a fire. It’s some serious “Third Eye” business. And the visuals are downright esoteric. The video was directed by Henry Acteson for Cutaway Visuals. And OTC did all of the production, themselves. Check it out after the jump.

And we just got word that the Crooks are dropping their forthcoming Care Package mixtape on Sept. 8 (that’s next week) and this track is going to be on it. According to Monski, the tape includes a bunch of dope new material, as well as some solo work from Monski and Beach Season, respectively. “It’s kind of a literal ‘mix,’ in that the songs don’t have a common theme or pattern. But the OTC feeling is there,” he said.

Get ready for it, people.
