Earlier this week, after months of teasing fans, DJ Muggs and MF DOOM connected on a song called “Death Wish” with Freddie Gibbs—the first release from a joint effort between Soul Assassin and the Masked Villain.
Now, the duo come through with an animated video for the song, as well as information on what’s to come.
“Death Wish” is the first of a 2-song release from Muggs and DOOM—which will be paired with a B-Side called “Assassination Day” with Kool G Rap—that arrives this Friday (6/29). The single marks the first ‘chapter’ from Muggs’ forthcoming album, Assassination Day, dropping August 3rd, that follows a vigilante theme where hip hop takes corruption head on, figuratively killing off powerful evildoers in positions of power. The album will be made up of multiple ‘chapters’ alongside various emcees.
Animated by Patric Magno and Edgar Neri, the “Death Wish” visual can be seen below.
