Warp Hip-Hop Video

Newly up on the Warp Records site is a streaming video for Req‘s “Soul Plot,” off last year’s Car Paint Scheme album. The track is an echoey chunk of instrumental old-school-style hip-hop. As the song unfolds, it gets filtered through a contemporary sensibility, becoming more and more distorted. The video consists of roughed-up footage of a graffitti artist, who appears to be Req himself. Apparently the video is a clip of a longer film titled Street Value by Geoff Johnson, who works under the name Pablo Fiasco. (Video available here; more on Req at req.net.)
