Swamp Thing – Elephant Man ft. Ghettosocks [Video]

Toronto, ONSwamp Thing and Ghettosocks just dropped this new video for “Elephant Man” off Swamp Thing’s Firedogs album. These visuals strike an eerie resemblance to the 1980 film of the same name. Think of this as an anthem for the misfits – the misfits who go deep into the realms of the underground hip-hop world until they go kind of crazy. Then they lose it, develop homicidal tendencies, and buy skeletons off of Craigslist. And there’s a lot of talk about the devil. I swear they were flashing Illuminati symbols, too. But then again, maybe they weren’t.

Just goes to show you that insanity can inspire some pretty dope verses. The video was produced, directed, and edited by Dan Jardine for BOOM Shoal Ent. Check it below. And head over to URBNET to cop a download of Firedogs.

About Swamp Thing

Swamp Thing is the brainchild of Timbuktu, Chokeules and Savilion. Their first album Creature Feature offered a glimpse into the warped world of Swamp Thing, but now the b-movie monsters drag themselves out of the depths for their hard-hitting sophomore release, Firedogs. Three well-established artists in their own right join forces to do what they do best: make dope hip hop and rock hype live shows, fine-tuned from years of work in the studio and countless performances.

Long time collaborators Timbuktu (Toolshed, Teenburger, Backburner) and Chokeules (Toolshed, Backburner) have teamed up with fellow Toronto emcee/producer Savilion (Creature Box, Backburner) to form a group unlike anything they’ve done before. Each member has been contributing to the scene for over a decade, recording, touring, and putting out music. Both Savilion and Timbuktu are also producers/engineers with credits ranging from Sadat X to Awol One, while Timbuktu and Chokeules have performed at festivals such as SXSW, NXNE, CMW and Under Pressure. They’ve also performed with notable acts like Aceyalone (Freestyle Fellowship), GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Lootpack (Stone Throw), El Da Sensei (Artifacts), and many more.

Swamp Thing combines the trio’s experience as Savilion and Timbuktu create party soundtracks and soundsapes on which the three emcees rap about topics ranging from horror and sci-fi to wild nights and life on the road. At the end of the day, Swamp Thing is all about banging beats, hard rhymes, and melting faces off with rap. Stay tuned.
