“Hater Used Hate”: This Hip-Hop RPG Video Is Super Effective at Making You Laugh
At first, the vibe of SG Grey Days’ retro-RPG-styled video didn’t grab me. An overworld that looked like something out of a Genesis-era game? Yawn. But when the random encounter battle with a Wild Hater got underway, I couldn’t stop laughing.
The clip is for the Frames of Invincibility EP by rap duo SG Grey Days, who say that they’re“inspired by the sensibility of early 90’s New York Hip-Hop, blended with today’s dynamic instrumentation.” The worst thing about the jokes in the turn-based rap battle is that they kept me from listening to the lyrics. Here’s hoping these folks—and video director Marc Blair—do a few more videos like this.
